Susan tells Eddie that Vicky's coming to Neil's birthday lunch, so she's going to have to get the best china out. Eddie knows she's as keen as everyone else to meet Vicky.

Ruth's been on edge over Pip's maths exam, which seems to go ok. David's not expecting Pip to get an A - he just wants her to pass.

Robert searches the internet to see if Joe and Eddie's 'treasure' is of real value, and notices a couple of mediaeval coins worth about 30 pounds. Joe wishes they were worth more but Robert's enthusiastic at the realisation that there was a mediaeval settlement somewhere in Ambridge. Joe suddenly becomes very vague about where they found the coins.

Joe tells Eddie it's the tip of the iceberg. The bump in the ground at Grange Farm must be a mediaeval hoard, and once Edward gets the tenancy, the hoard will belong to the Grundys. It's come just in time for Eddie, with his work drying up. Joe points out Bridge Farm will need help with their new drainage system. But with half the village up in arms about the potential smell, Eddie's convinced the planning committee will turn down the application.

Episode written by Tim Stimpson.
