WNTV: 'Tarrant's Way' visits Ross-on-Wye
Chris Tarrant and his wife, Ingrid recently took to the
road in their vintage Bentley, visiting Ross-on-Wye. Chris
and Ingrid, along with the crew from 'Flame
TV' are filming a second series of sixty minute daytime
television documentaries, 'Tarrant's Way'. Following a
very successful daytime series which was broadcast in
the London region, this second series of programmes will
be shown nation-wide on the ITV Network later this year.
Chris Travers of 'Flame TV' contacted Wyenot.com in March
having read about the local area on this web site and
asked for some location suggestions for the series and
more detailed information about the area. I sent along
a detailed email, suggesting places that I personally
found interesting which included, Ross Market House, St.
Mary's Church, Goodrich Castle, The
White Lion Inn and Broome

programme makers decided to take up the story of the daughter
of Colonel Birch, Alice, who during the Civil war was
drowned in the River Wye with her lover, Charles whilst
attempting to escape the Roundhead siege on Goodrich Castle.
also visited the White Lion Inn at Wilton to talk to Landlord
and Landlady, Dave and Jacqui Newman about a tunnel under
the road, leading to Wilton Castle which was used by religious
dignitaries during the middle ages. Having sampled some
of the local cider from 'Broome Farm' at the Inn, Chris
was eventually thrown out of the pub by some drinkers
from the Forest of Dean because he asked about 'the bear'.
He and Ingrid then went on to Broome Farm itself at Peterstow
to witness a 'Wassail' cider apple fertility ritual and
sample even more cider.
would be the case with most men, Chris asked his wife
to drive the Bentley so that he could get plenty of sampling
in before sleeping it off to begin the next day's filming.
went along on Thursday, 4th May to meet Chris, Ingrid
and the crew from 'Flame TV' at the White Lion Inn and
travelled with the party to Broome Farm to photograph
the filming for Wyenot News and the Ross Gazette. I have
to say I had a great time in doing so. The couple were
extremely friendly, chatting to local children, Stevie
and Madison Cooke (aged 7 and 3). They even allowed a
very nervous, Tina Jones to interview them in the White
Lion for a short video clip which
can be seen on Wyenot Television by clicking here.
Tina performed extremely well, especially considering
that she was only given five minutes notice of the event
and I am very proud of her.

Congratulations to Alan and Jennifer!
Congratulations to Alan and Jennifer
Ross on their recent marriage after a very long courtship!
Thank you to Phil Long of Broome Farm for supplying the
photos below. Unfortunately the editorial went astray
somewhere along the line so I will publish the full story
next week. The Ross Gazette event sent me a backup when
I didn't receive the original and that went astray also.
I am beginning to seriously suspect my email. Normally,
I would have held the photos back until next week but
I had already set this page, anticipating the arrival
of the information and it would have been too much work
with not enough time to complete it to remove the article
as it means changing the format of the whole issue.
