The Lakes

Episode 1 of 4

Series exploring the hidden corners of the UK and revealing landscape secrets. Ellie Harrison, Chris Hollins and Denise Lewis explore the Lake District.

We live in a country with some of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in the world. It is easy to think of Britain as a crowded place, but with more than sixty million acres to explore there is still plenty of the UK for us to discover and enjoy.

In this episode of the series that promises to reveal hidden stories and undiscovered parts of the country, Ellie Harrison, Chris Hollins and Denise Lewis explore the Lake District.

Parachuting in - quite literally - Ellie Harrison gets a unique perspective on England's most popular national park, and she is also let in on the secret of an ancient and long-forgotten part of the Cumbrian landscape.

Meanwhile, Denise Lewis gets to the bottom of the Lakes' dark and illicit past, and Chris Hollins is coaxed up a sheer cliff face by one of the world's best climbers - and rewarded with a spectacular view that only a handful of people ever get to see.
