Baddesley Clinton 1

A visit to Baddesley Clinton near Warwick uncovers a gruesome box containing a wooden peg removed from a child's eye by a surgeon in the 1780s.

Fiona Bruce and the team visit the moated manor house of Baddesley Clinton, just 15 miles from the bustle of Birmingham.

A busy day of valuations uncovers more fascinating finds, including a gruesome box containing a long wooden peg removed from a child's eye by a surgeon in the 1780s, a glittering diamond bracelet once worn by Hollywood star Rita Hayworth and a painting made by Lord Mountbatten of his family home.

There's also much conversation about a carving of St George banished to the organ loft for offending parishioners, and a visitor gets a stern warning from a Roadshow expert after stripping a rare wooden pedestal of its original paintwork.
