Part 2 at 9pm tonight on BBC2

Tonight they're recreating an authentic pharmacy of the 1850s and 1860s, a time when unsanitary living conditions led to frequent outbreaks of disease.

Watched part 1 yesterday and found it great.
May get part 2 in this afternoon.

Ruth has proved her knowledge of Victorian Social History time after time.

Where it the Street/Village situated?
Near Acton Scot, Ludlow area?

Don't forget Ben Fogle's Escape in Time too.
More Victoriana about now than when ol' Vickie was alive.
