Several thousand plastic ponchos, stored under the reception desk, were not needed when the BBC Antiques Roadshow came to Pembroke Castle.  The sun shone, there was a cooling breeze and the castle provided the perfect setting for this great event.

The Pembrokeshire Life Online team were delighted to be welcomed by the BBC, to bring you behind the scenes at the only Antiques Roadshow broadcast from Wales, this series.

“We have a responsibility to make sure this family are safe,” Ruby said, vehemently.

Her cheeks were flushed and the colour was spreading to her chest. To Monty she looked like a figure-head, full- bossomed and wild-haired in her determination to see justice done and it was all he could do to prevent himself from applauding.

Edgar Branwhite on the other hand was of a different mind.

“There are two small children and a mother at the end of her tether in that chalet,” Ruby continued, “It’s not fit for winter…”

As she paused to catch her breath, Edgar Branwhite saw his chance, “My point exactly. It’s a summer-let only. My clients have been quite clear on that point and furthermore, no one gave them permission to be there. They are squatting and, as agent for the property, I will be taking steps towards their eviction.”

A Winston Churchill Memorial Trust award is a boost for this young luthier from South West Wales.

Creating electric guitars from recycled or salvaged materials, George Parfitt is founder of Dockyard Guitars in Pembroke Dock.  The award will enable him to explore the cultural Cigar Box Guitar Movement in U.S.A.

I first met George Parfitt sitting cross-legged on the grass in front of his tent at the 2016, ‘Unearthed In A Field’ festival. He was surrounded by a range of his cigar box guitars.

I next saw George before he dashed of to Europe for a couple of months in autumn last year. Here, I catch up with him again with some of his backstory from that interview and exciting news of his forthcoming pilgrimmage to take in the Cigar Box Guitar revolution in America.

A Field Year – February

As winter draws to a close, Pembrokeshire is fortunate to enjoy a milder climate than much of the rest of the UK, averaging about 8-10 C. This year we had some hard frost, foggy starts and rain, but mostly this month was dull and grey. Being up in the field at dawn can still be uplifting and February dawns here are often blessed with “dragon’s breath” mist rising over the fields and valleys.
