Wrexham and Maelor - an area of Wales which bulges into England - are the focus for Trevor Fishlock in a programme packed with fascinating stories.
St Giles’ is the largest medieval parish church in Wales, and it is home to a host of treasures, including a sixteenth century Doom painting and a sculptor by Louis Roubiliac.
Over the centuries the church has been extended and restored, with much of the work paid for by Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale University in the United States. Yale’s family came from the area and he is buried in the churchyard.
In Fenn’s Moss, among the kestrels and curlews, Trevor meets an expert cutting peat to restore the bog land.
Nearby, a farmer takes him down into the nuclear bunker built under his land by the government and Trevor hears the story of the Welsh racehorse which was ridden to Grand National victory by Lester Piggott’s grandfather.
