A HEREFORDSHIRE father and son duo will star in Richard Hammonds new TV show as they pursue their love for restoring classic cars.

Former BBC Top Gear star Richard Hammond has been seen filming for his new TV show for Discovery+ UK, Richard Hammond's workshop, in Rotherwas, Hereford.

Now a presenter of Amazon Prime's The Grand Tour, Hammond opened his new business, The Smallest Cog, in Hereford on August 28.

Hammond, who lives in Weston-under-Penyard near Ross-on-Wye has been working on his workshop, where he has opened a car restoration and repair business with local mechanics and father and son Neil and Anthony Greenhouse.

Hammond, 51, and the Greenhouses were filmed by TV crews as they opened their new business.

Neil, 58, and Anthony, 34, from Tram Inn, near Allensmore have worked together since Anthony was of age.

Neil has been fixing cars for 30 years and ran the Tram Inn garage servicing cars and car body repairs for 26 years.

Anthony has followed in his father's footsteps, as he completed his car mechanic qualifications at Hereford and Ludlow college so he could work in the family business.

"Dad's always loved cars and restoring, he's been working since he was 10 in a garage, then obviously I've grown up around it, so I've fallen in love with it," said Anthony.

The pair have already worked on restoring and repairing some of Hammond's cars, including a Jaguar E-type and XK150, as well as his Bentley.

Andrew Greenhouse, 53, brother of Neil, has partnered with the father and son duo to also work in the business.

The Greenhouses have worked with Mr Hammond for six years, after a mutual friend put their names forward to work on his cars.

The building their company was in previously was due to be sold as the landlord passed away, Mr Hammond did not want to see their skills put to waste, so he asked them to go into business together.

Neil and Anthony have been filming for around three months now.

"It's a new experience for us, we've never done anything like this, I'm just a quiet boy from Hereford, to get to do this is quite a big thing for us.

"It will be weird seeing us on TV, but at least I get to do it with my dad," said Anthony.

When the show finishes, they will run business as normal, with clients already booked in.

"We'll try to push and grow it, and you never know there might be a season 2," said Anthony.
