Cheshire and the Wirral



Matt and Ellie are exploring Cheshire and a wildlife haven in the Wirral. Matt is on a dairy farm meeting sixth-generation farmer Henry Cooke and hearing his plans to become the biggest producer of clotted cream outside the south west. Matt takes a look at Henry’s Danish red cattle, whose rich milk is the secret ingredient. He then sees how the cream is baked to become clotted cream. Ellie meets the retirees who have hooked up with Cheshire Wildlife Trust to make bespoke furniture, the sales of which go toward helping local wildlife. She then heads to the Wirral, to the unspoiled Hilbre Island, with bird enthusiast Allan Conlin to see the wide variety of birds there and to hear about Allan’s passion for this remote island, just a stone's throw from Liverpool city centre. Also in this programme Hannah Cockroft travels to beautiful North Uist in the Outer Hebrides to get a taste of the crofting life. Tom is looking at the struggle faced by many rural vets to stay in business, and Adam is in Somerset finding out about a scheme to help young people get a foot on the farming ladder.
