Dennis Fire Engine

Clockmaker and former retained firefighter Steve Fletcher gets the chance to work on a toy replica of an early Dennis fire engine. But this is not an ordinary child's toy; this one-off piece was built by one of the mechanics at the real Dennis fire engine factory. Ceramics restoration expert Kirsten Ramsay pieces together a beautiful Japanese Imari bowl that has been smashed to bits, and reveals the gruesome purpose behind its design. And the whole Repair Shop team comes together to save a weathered piece of Dorset history - a unique village sign, made up of metal, wood and ceramic parts all originally created by craftspeople who lived in the village.
