Episode 2 - Northumberland National Park
Robson Green returns to his home county of Northumberland for this second series - and, having visited many of the county’s most famous landmarks on his last trip, this time he’s uncovering the hidden gems of one of the most beautiful parts of England.
Robson explores parts of the county he’s never been to before - and some he didn’t even know existed - from its remote valleys and mystical ruins, to the hidden history of its castles and stately homes.
The series sees Robson take on exciting new challenges - from shipwreck diving at the Farne Islands to wild camping in the Cheviot Hills and digging for Roman relics at Hadrian’s Wall, to skinny-dipping in the North Sea.
Along the way he’ll discover a whole new side to Northumberland - and find out just why it’s known as Britain’s best-kept secret.
In this second episode Robson heads to the Northumberland National Park where he tries his hand at one of Britain’s oldest - and toughest - sports, Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling.
He visits one of Britain’s most remote glens, College Valley, and spends a night wild camping in the Cheviot Hills.
And Robson is given rare access to The Otterburn Ranges, a vast military training camp in the National Park, where he uncovers the story behind its World War One training trenches.
