When Pitchford Hall was sold in 1992, the contents of the family home were put up for auction. It was heartbreaking to witness – but now, with the family back at the Hall – they are focussing on a worldwide hunt for the treasures of the collection. In this episode of American Viscountess at Pitchford Hall, Julie hears about the search and helps hang one of the most treasured paintings, and meets Violet Roberts, who has kept the spirit of Pitchford alive for over 30 years.
