Episode 13
This week Ben Fogle is in the Lake District at the annual Ennerdale show where he takes part in some sheep showing and gets to grips with some Cumbrian wrestling.
Liz Bonnin heads to the River Nith in South West Scotland for a training day with the river rescue team, and actress Sheila Hancock returns to the quiet corner of the Dorset coast where she first fell in love with the countryside almost eighty years ago.
Series overview
Countrywise: Guide To Britain sets out to inspire us all to explore the beautiful British countryside – with its hidden gems, natural wonders and great escapes.
Across the series Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin will be our guides to the great outdoors - along with some well-known faces who'll share their love of their countryside with us.
The series also meets the people who call our countryside home – like mum of nine, best selling author and shepherdess Amanda Owen, as she welcomes yet another new arrival down on her Yorkshire Dales farm.
