Review

In this episode of this simple pleasure of a series: Robson Green, cliché machine, is walking the Pennine Way. He meets a man who has lived since childhood in a partially renovated medieval castle (“An Englishman’s home is his castle!”) and a woman whose farm conceals the earthworks of Epiacum, a second-century Roman fort.

After a quick history of the Way, we’re up into the beautiful Cheviot Hills with Iron Joss, an extraordinary 79-year-old fell runner. Then when the rain clouds close in, it’s time for Robson to take shelter in a mountain refuge hut. “Any port in a storm!”

Summary

The actor hikes along the Northumberland stretch of the Pennine Way, starting at a remote farm that is home to the remains of a vast Roman fort known as Epiacum. Further along the route, Robson stops off at Blenkinsopp Castle to meet owner Mike Simpson, whose family bought the property for just £2,000 in 1955, and joins 79-year-old fell runner Joss Naylor for a workout in the Cheviot Hills, before spending a night in a mountain refuge hut.
