Salvage Hunters, the popular Quest TV and Discovery Channel show, is heading to Dumfries and Galloway to record a special edition of the programme in the near future, but the show's research team are also looking to add a Cumbrian special to their list.

Now in its 11th series and airing to nearly half a million people in the UK and millions more in Europe, the show has recorded specials in Germany, Norway, Ireland as well as all over the UK.

The show follows architectural salvage and antiques expert Drew Pritchard as he travels around the UK to prestigious, interesting, and historic places hunting out and buying quirky and unusual objects no longer wanted by their present owner.

Drew has visited everywhere from beautiful stately homes, to architectural salvage dealers, to private collectors and museums, buying everything from 16th century oak tables to 6 ft disco balls.

A statement from the show's research team reads: "Drew will be heading to the area soon to follow up on some leads, but ahead of that anyone can get in touch with the production team if they know an interesting location with multiple objects for sale that would work for the show."

If you know of any locations that you think should be included on the show, you can phone 020 3179 0092 or email to discuss a potential visit.
