In this episode:
Andrew Price heads to Anglesey where he harvests, cleans and cooks mussels on the banks of the Menai Strait.
Showing him how it’s done is Shaun Krijnen from Menai Oysters, a shellfish farmer who has been growing mussels and oysters for 13 years. Fantastic food in a beautiful location.
Mynydd Cilan is Ruth Wignall’s destination this week as she continues her journey along the Wales Coast Path.
She’s joined by Dave Lamacraft from Plantlife Cymru. He knows this landscape and it’s plants inside out having spent hours walking the rugged heathland. They also visit the site of a trial mine apparently dug by Cornish miners searching for Manganese.
Nicola Hendy takes to the waters of Llandegfedd Reservoir on a Stand-Up Paddleboard under the guidance of Mike Walking from Gwent Adventures. It’s not long until she’s off paddling around the reservoir, relaxing and enjoying the scenery as she goes.
