Episode 5: Cheddar Gorge
Home to many secrets from our ancient ancestors, Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar in Somerset. This is where Britain's oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, estimated at over 9,000 years old, was found in 1903. A spectacular visual feast both inside and out, from its breathtaking cliffs to subterranean limestone caves, adventure awaits for all the family – the perfect mix of nature, wildlife and historic secrets just waiting to be discovered.
Episode 6: Dartmoor
Famous for its ponies and craggy outcrops, Dartmoor is a vast landscape defined by forests, rivers, wetlands and tors. Situated in the county of Devon, Dartmoor is scattered with Neolithic tombs, Bronze Age stone circles and abandoned medieval farmhouses - inspiration for any family walk. An area of outstanding natural beauty covering 400 square miles, the often desolate, windswept landscape is teeming with rich history and stunning rare wildlife, including its beautiful butterflies and playful otters.
Episode 7: St. Michael’s Mount
If you’re ever in Cornwall, St. Michael’s Mount is a must. Park the car in the linked town of Marazion, wait for the tide to go out, then take a stroll along the manmade causeway of granite cobbles to reach this unique location. Once the home to an ancient monastery in the 8th-11th centuries, thanks to numerous archaeological discoveries, there’s clear evidence of people living in the area during the Neolithic period.
