Episode Summary

EDIT
Bitterley, Shropshire
AIRED:

A village affair.

There's a problem in the chocolate-box village of Bitterley in Shropshire. The village's school and cottages cluster prettily around the green. But the village church and the manor house lie more than half a mile away, on the other side of a lumpy, bumpy empty field.

The villagers, led by energetic community archaeology group leader June Buckard, have been exploring the field and believe that their village used to be much bigger, with the field full of houses and streets. They have called in Tony Robinson and the Team to see if they're right.

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Tony: Welcome to Bitterley in Shropshire, the quintessential English village almost chocolate box. It's bursting with pretty cottages, a lovely church, an imposing stately home all surrounded by empty rolling fields. But maybe not quite so empty, we've been invited here by the people of Bitterley because they think that their village once covered this entire huge field. So are they right, was quaint little old Bitterley once a much bigger bustling Bitterley? We've got just three days to find out. Let's hope they're not bitterly disappointed. Sorry.

      • Mick: You look around Tony, with what we've got in this field. You've been doing this long enough to have an opinion as to what this lot is.
        Tony: Well I must admit I am standing on some rather gnarled lumps and bumps; does the phrase deserted medieval village seem very accurate?
        Mick: Absolutely its looks like medieval settlement remains.

      • Mick: Aston's First Law of Local Research says that the local version is invariably wrong.
        Mary-Ann: Oh, none of the villages would like that.
        Mick: But Aston's Second Law of Local Research is that whatever they tell you is probably right.
        Mary-Ann: Ah, what?

      • Tony: John, we were looking for a moat, have we got one?
        John: Half a moat.
        Tony: Half a moat is better than none.
