Episode Summary

Lake District
Joe Crowley is in Cumbria exploring the lakes' wild side. He meets Tom Lloyd Tom, who runs fell pony treks that follow old pack-horse routes. As they trek up into the fells, it's like going back in time, treading in the hoof-steps of countless pack ponies before them. Fell ponies would once have transported all kinds of riches from the lakes in this way, like iron, lead and copper. Joe then hears more about the lakes' industrial heritage as he meets the artists behind a new installation celebrating the areas copper-mining history. Meanwhile, Charlotte investigates the rise of far-right extremism in the countryside.moreless
