BBC Countryfile films at Sharpham

BBC Countryfile films at Sharpham

Published: 01 July 2016

The BBC have been filming at Sharpham!

We welcomed John Craven and Naomi Wilkinson to The Sharpham Trust for a packed day of filming, for a Countryfile episode which aired on BBC1 at 7pm on Sunday July 17.

This prime-time rural affairs programme put Sharpham's name in front of its 8.6 million viewers.

The show - a special about meadows - featured a piece on Sharpham Meadow Natural Burial Ground, and its managers the Green Funeral Company, as well as a creator of felt shrouds used in green burials.

Sharpham's resident forager Brigit-Anna McNeill also featured, talking to Countryfile presenter John Craven about the medicinal benefits to be found in meadow plants.
