Duration: 0:28:30

Description: Fiona Bruce and the experts travel to Wentworth Woodhouse, a palace built amidst the coalfields of south Yorkshire. Objects brought in by visitors with their family treasures include a mahogany bureau once owned by Earl Fitzwilliam, the owner of the property. There is also a delicate glass punch bowl which survived the air raids of World War Two in numerous visits to the air raid shelter, and a box of unpromising looking bones turns out to be a rare survival aid crafted by Napoleonic prisoners of war.
