A legendary Hull pilot is helping to put one of the region’s landmarks on the map more than 70 years after her death.

The recently refurbished Amy Johnson collection at Bridlington’s Sewerby Hall will on show for the whole nation next week after cameras from the Antiques Road Trip rolled into town last October.

The BBC One show will be screened on Wednesday January 28 at 4.30pm and will feature antiques specialists looking for treasures in a bid to strike it rich at auction. The show will focus in part on Sewerby Hall’s tribute to Johnson.

Museum registrar Dr David Marchant said the filming concentrated on memorabilia such as Johnson’s CBE medal, flying helmet and various family pictures. It also shows her bag discovered at the site of her crash in 1941.

Councillor Richard Burton said the screening would enable millions of viewers to see the “wonderful” Sewerby Hall, raising its profile even further.
