On one of my Heritage walks last year around Newcastle I visited the property that was featured in the BBC Series A House through Time with David Olusoga it was a must watch . During and since the show the House has had countless people visit to take photographs . On the Heritage walk there are normally 30 maybe 40 people and always sufficient Guides to narrate the walk .I've always wondered about buying/selling old set houses, I noticed Liz & Emmets house from KUA recently sold. I'm wondering whether being used in a famous comedy series increases the value due to it's history or whether it would put buyers off with fans coming for a nosy every so often???
On this one there were 230 people turned up with 4 guides . When we reached the House in 4 groups of nearly 60 not surprisingly the couple who owned it had the internal shutters closed to protect their privacy . The guide I was with believed they were so fed up of the attention that they were putting the house for sale .
No doubt they did receive money as part of the show but I suspect it paled into insignificance with the intrusion into their privacy so sometimes you need to be careful of what you wish for . Nora's has had prolonged attention for a number of years now.
