Episode 9
This week Ben Fogle heads to Yorkshire - the home of British cycling to see how this sport is a great way to see the countryside- and to take part in some of the county’s steepest challenges.
Liz Bonnin is in Shropshire for an encounter with an animal you would never expect to see roaming the British countryside- the Wolf.
Actor David Bradley returns to Northumberland and Alnwick Castle where he starred in the Harry Potter movies.  
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.
