Summer Special

Countryfile heads to the north Norfolk coast. After a rather wet start, they set about restoring a much-loved quintessentially British sea shelter. It's stood proudly overlooking the coast for more than 70 years but has fallen into disrepair so Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury join the local council in an attempt to spruce it up. Matt is sent to find local timber in an historic saw mill to replace some of the shelter's seating whilst Julia meets a local artist who helps her add an artistic touch to the shelter. Meanwhile John Craven is further along the coast helping the National Trust celebrate the 100th anniversary of Blakeney Point and he meets up with some local school children to clean the beach. Ellie Harrison goes fishing for the local delicacy of Cromer crabs and tries to find out why young people are so reluctant to take up fishing for these tasty crustaceans. Adam Henson also has food on his mind as he meets up with a local chilli grower who makes very hot chilli sauce. He also visits the Holkham estate to see how they manage their beef cattle who they graze on the salt marshes.
