Where is the BBC series filmed?

It might surprise fans of the show to learn that it is being filmed in a museum near Chichester.

The workshop is located in the Weald and Downland Living Museum.

Established by South Downs National Park, the site spans 40 acres and includes more than 50 historic buildings – including The Repair Shop’s thatched cottage home – some of which date back to 950 AD.

There are also gardens, a mill pond and farm animals on the site.

The museum’s director, Simon Wardell, said in a statement on the facility’s website: “We are an independent museum, we rescue and preserve historic buildings, we teach traditional crafts to ensure their preservation, and we share the untold stories of the rural life and those who have lived it in the south east of England. “

Unfortunately, due to the national lockdown, the museum had to close its doors “until further notice” according to a COVID-19 update on the website.
