Episode 1263 Lee Valley



A visit to Lee Valley, which has provided a rural getaway for city dwellers in London, Essex and Hampshire for more than four decades. Ellie Harrison searches the area for wildlife and finds out what is being done to clean up its chalk streams, and Matt Baker meets the Sicilian siblings who have turned salad-growing into a thriving family business. Ellie also joins RNLI volunteers as they carry out essential flood-training exercises at the Olympic Water Park. On the farm, Adam Henson is searching for a new Gloucester bull to improve his herd, and Tom Heap searches for proof that climate change is affecting the British countryside.
