Taste of Northumberland

Robson Green presented an eight part TV series in which he journeyed through his home county of Northumberland.  The series followed Robson as he visited places which inspired him as a child, met some remarkable Northumbrian characters and explored some of the county’s magical landscapes and attractions.

During the series he had a close encounter with a colony of Arctic Terns as he spent a night on the Farne Islands and enjoyed a night in an isolated bothy in the middle of Wark Forest. He explored the fascinating border history of Berwick-upon-Tweed and its connections with the artist LS Lowry.

Along the way Robson sampled Craster Kippers, learned some traditional Northumbrian crafts and even tried his hand at the Northumbrian Pipes with Kathryn Tickell. He also found time to visit stunning stretches of Hadrian’s Wall and some of the county’s famous castles, including Alnwick, Bamburgh and Chillingham.

The series is available to buy on DVD and can be purchased here.
