Kent locations used: Ashford

Channel 4’s makeover property series, the Secret Removers comes to Kent as the Dryden family in Ashford receive a helping hand with the stresses of moving house, but will they like the results once the team have decorated their new house?

With moving house often listed as one of the most stressful things to go through in life,  The Secret Removers hope to take the worry of moving away from a family!

In each episode, interior designers Claire Smith, Ben Huckerby, Alison Cork, George Johnson and Judith Hopkins take turns to take control of the moving process for a family, including choosing which of the families posessions they throw away, which  to use and how to decorate the new home. But will the surprise be a nice one for the family, or a disaster?

Ashford has become a lively town due to its tremendous rail links, both to Europe via the Eurostar and to the capital via the High Speed Javelin. The town boasts many shops, eateries, and a designer outlet shopping centre and only a short drive away you’ll find lots of beautiful countryside. This isn’t the first time that Ashford and surrounding areas has been used for filming with previous visiting productions including Cowboy Traders (2012), Country File (2012)  and Emma (2009).

The Secret Removers is on Channel 4 on Wednesday 28th November 2012 at 11:00 on Channel 4.
