Hairy Bikers: Restoration Road Trip
Not yet reviewed.
Dave Myers and Si King get their hands dirty visiting and taking part in projects to restore Britain's industrial past. Lending a helping hand to the passionate and skilled volunteers who are breathing new life into the machines that once made Britain the workshop of the world, it is a fun but also personal journey for the Bikers, whose families were both shaped by the industrial revolution.
They begin by joining some ex-miners who are meticulously restoring Pleasley Colliery in Derbyshire. There is personal passion for Si as he helps to restore a steam winding engine, as his grandfather was a winder. Dave helps to celebrate 150 years of the London Underground by by putting Met 1, the tube's oldest working steam train, through its paces as it prepares to carry passengers a century after it went out of service.
The Bikers also help fire up a barn engine on a Hampshire farm for the first time in 60 years and discover that the fairground was the last word in Victorian fun.
