Episode 2: The Elms & Coulton Mill

Summary

Kieran Long revisits Gavin and Anne, who worked for a year on the Elms, a three-storey Georgian mansion in Derbyshire, before running out of money. A year later, Gavin has painstakingly reinstated the original staircase, but there is much intricate work still to do. Kieran then heads to North Yorkshire, where he finds Heather and Nick are closer than ever to bringing Coulton Mill back to life, and the recent restoration of the ancient farm buildings has rejuvenated crafts and skills that were close to being lost for ever.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

An appearance on Restoration Home can turn the houses in question into tourist traps, as these revisits reveal. The owners of Coulton Mill, a water mill in North Yorkshire that they rescued from ruin, routinely doled out tea and biscuits to passers-by who came to admire their lovely home after the broadcast. Even the family’s pigs became mini TV stars. And a lady who watched the revamping of the derelict but promising Georgian house the Elms, in Derbyshire, recognised it as a place where she’d spent a lot of her childhood, as her grandparents lived there.

Caroline Quentin is once more our guide as she returns to see how life has changed for everyone involved.
