This week Coast & Country comes from Flintshire.

Andrew Price visits Wales’ first pub with its very own post office, The Bluebell Inn, Halkyn.

Andrew also embarks on a four-mile walk taking in Halkyn Mountain Common, accompanied by local ranger Rachael Watson, where he discovers the link between the common and some of London's smartest districts.

Andrew meets archaeologist Fiona Gale at Moel y Gaer, an Iron Age hill fort, where he learns how a reservoir build in the 1970's on the site ironically led to discoveries that helped archaeologists around the world.

Hannah Thomas visits a new saltmarsh being created on the northern edge of the Gower Peninsula - the first of its kind in Wales.

It's hoped the project, led by the National Trust & Natural Resources Wales, will provide a new habitat for wildlife and also provide a natural flood defence by soaking up the power of the waves.

In Bridgend Ruth Wignall discovers more about the conservation work being carried out to attract the beautiful Lapwing at Parc Slip Nature Reserve. The numbers of the bird are decreasing as the pressure on its habitats increase.

Don’t miss Coast & Country tonight, Friday February 27th at 8.00pm on ITV Cymru Wales.
