Not yet reviewed.
Join the Delightful Penelope Keith as she Discovers the UK's Best Coastal Villages.
Dame Penelope Keith returns for more travels through Britain's villages armed with her trusty Batsford guides. In this new series, she's exploring an integral part of Britain's national character: its stunning coastline. Penelope seeks out the community heartbeat that's unique to coastal village life; from fishing and lifeboats to pleasure boating and holidaymaking, the sea brings both joy and danger; Penelope delves into local crafts and industry as well as arts and literature. She visits three distinct parts of the British coastline and contrasts what the writers of the Batsford guides discovered in the first half of the 20th century with what she sees today.
Episode 1 - Isle of Wight & West Sussex: Touring the south coast, Penelope becomes immersed in stories of seafarers, smugglers and shipwrecks, with visits to Bosham, Birdham, and an epic battle of the waves
Episode 2 - Northumberland & Scottish Borders: Penelope is swept up by coastal tales of epic heroism, intrepid horticulture and smoked herring, as she visits Lindisfarne, Low Newton and the medieval village of Warkworth
Episode 3 - East Anglia: Penelope is plunged into tales of bravery, scandal and intrigue on the east coast, including stopovers at Weybourne, Cley Next The Sea, Thorpeness and Dunwich
