STAFFORD landmark the Ancient High House has been on TV.
The Greengate Street building, one of the oldest in the borough, featured in A Very British Murder at 9pm on BBC Four.
It stood in for poisoner William Palmer’s parlour in the show.
Rachel Jardine, producer/director, said: “It was so fantastic to film at a location that was so friendly and accommodating to our needs and everyone was s helpful allowing us to film at such short notice. We really enjoyed filming there.”
Palmer, who trained and worked at the old Staffordshire General Infirmary in Foregate Street, was hanged at Stafford Gaol in 1856, attracting 35,000 spectators. His wife’s family owned the Noah’s Ark Inn in Crabbery Street, more recently known as the Stafford Ale House.
The Ancient High House held a major William Palmer exhibition in 2004.
