Scope and content

Esther Hepworth grew up in Bampton as did her parents and grandparents. Esther was an Extra in Downton Abbey and she commented that dressed as an older lady, she felt she was walking in the footsteps of her great-grandmother because she lived in the very streets where they were filming. The article about Esther chronicles the history of the creation of Downton Abbey. Patrick Strainge butchers created a special pie called the Patmore Pie after the cook in the series while they won five golds at the Q Guild Smithfield Awards 2015.
