Combe Martins annual Hunting of the Earl of Rone had a special guest tonight (Monday) in the form of television actress Penelope Keith. The star, well known for her role as Margot in The Good Life, was at the celebrations filming for a second series of her show Penelope Keiths Hidden Villages. She observed the concluding parade of the bank holiday weekend as hundreds of costumed villagers, musicians and colourful characters took to the streets for Combe Martins unique folk tradition. After spending the weekend hunting for the elusive earl, he is finally captured and paraded down the long street accompanied by grenadiers, the Hobby Horse, Fool and flower bearing ladies. The ceremony ended at sunset as the procession reached the beach and an effigy of the earl is cast into the sea. Penelope has been filming at several village locations including the beach and silver mines, with the next series of Penelope Keiths Hidden Villages expected to be aired on More 4 in the autumn.
