Remember the glorious summer of 2013? Leave January behind and join Anna Jones for a midsummer hike in the Radnorshire hills. She meets landscape historian Stuart Fry who leads 'Walking Through History' courses, teaching people how to spot layers of tangible history in the mid-Wales countryside. Iron Age hill forts, Roman roads and Medieval droving enclosures are all plain to see...if you know what to look out for.

Anna also hears how history can be a profitable diversification for farmers. Margot Porter has opened up Ty Gwyn Farm near Llandrindod Wells to history-loving ramblers, and throws in a picnic too.

Presented and produced by Anna Jones.
