The cameras were in Lavenham again this week - David Dimbleby was filming
the follow-up series to 'A Picture of Britain'.
The new series 'How We Built Britain' will again tour the whole country.
The episode featuring Lavenham will show the many types of architecture and
the ancient buildings in the village, including the Guildhall and the church
of St Peter and St Paul.
Suffolk timber framed buildings specialist Leigh Alston was on hand to
provide in-depth information.
There will also be a demonstration of pargetting, which visitors to the
county will have seen on many of the plaster work houses.
Apparently, Lavenham has one of the oldest sewerage systems too, and we
shall see Mr Dimbleby exploring beneath the streets of the village too.
If you wish to 'visit' Lavenham, www.lavenham.co.uk and the church is on
