For Northumberland’s biggest fans
There are three series of Robson Green's Tales From Northumberland, the fantastic eight-parter takes you through some of our most spectacular scenery, fascinating historic sites and stately homes, and showcases some of the region’s best kept hidden gems.
The third series, which was filmed a little later than the first two, is called ‘Further Tales from Northumberland’. During the series, Robson tries his hand at Britain's oldest, and toughest sports, Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling, in the unspoilt Northumberland National Park. He visits the remote College Valley and spends a night wild-camping in the Cheviot Hills.
He also discovers some of the region's greatest natural wonders; at Chillingham, he encounters one of the world's oldest breeds of cattle, which, he discovers, is also one of the most dangerous. He goes fishing and catches salmon in the River Tweed using the ancient method of net and coble boat, and visits some of the county’s famous stately houses; the National Trusts Seaton Delaval Hall, Wallington House & Gardens and Cragside, home to Victorian inventor Lord Armstrong just to name a few.
