In Search of the Devil’s Pulpit – Part Two


This is part two of my hike to the Devil’s Pulpit.

I am in Brockweir in Gloucestershire and I am am seeking out a famous viewpoint up in the the Wye Valley. The Devil’s Pulpit is a rocky limestone outcrop and scenic viewpoint located in the Forest of Dean District of Gloucestershire, England, within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is known for its views across the River Wye to Tintern Abbey, which stands on the opposite bank in Monmouthshire, Wales. Access lies from the Offa’s Dyke Path, and the site is close to the Offa’s Dyke earthwork itself.

Exploring the Maze Garden in Sidlesham


Richard Bushby only opens his garden to the public once a year to raise money for charity. Based in Sidlesham, West Sussex, Richard has worked hard at creating a unique garden. It boasts a small lake, croquet lawn, island beds and original sculpture. At its centre is the incredible maze.

Richard and Amanda Suggett and myself explore the garden. We venture into the Leylandii maze determined to find the centre. Can we do it?

The Success of English Wine Making in Kent


I am searching for English Wine Kent in today’s video. Publicity lady, Vikki Eames, escorts me around Biddenden Vineyard explaining the wine maker’s remarkable achievements and curious past.

Originally home to a 40 acre apple orchard, the Barnes family started to consider diversifying the farm in the late 1960s as apple prices began to decline. After listening to a feature on the BBC’s Woman’s Hour programme about English vineyards being replanted, Mrs. Barnes was inspired to turn to viticulture. In 1969, one third of an acre of vines was planted and Biddenden Vineyards was born.
