Incomprehensible dialects, terrible weather, a grim industrial backwater these are phrases traditionally used to describe the Northern stretches of England. This Globe Trekker puts an end to the myth, as we follow traveller Judith Jones through Yorkshire and Northumberland. Her journey starts in rural Suffolk on the Eastern board of England - the medieval town of Lavenham, with its quaint timber framed dwellings which were built on the riches acquired from a prosperous 14th century wool trade. Leaving Lavenham, Judith explores the mighty university city of Cambridge. A tour of King's College is followed by a romantic punt along the River Cam, where she learns about the university's proud history and especially, about the poet Lord Byron, who kept a bear in his student dormitories. And then, it's a long car ride on the A1 road 'up northÌ_å«Ì_åÇ, to Sheffield, in South Yorkshire. Sheffield is the steel capital and beer capital of Britain Leaving Sheffield, Judith takes a short train trip to Bradford. Bradford was once a booming industrial textile town which went bust in the 20th century but a large Indian Asian population known for its culinary powers has turned it into the curry capital of Britain. She ends her journey on a boat to the Farne Islands - ancient sanctuary of the monk Saint Cuthbert and present one of the puffin and other sea birds. Judith joins National Trust Park Ranger Will Scott as he counts puffin eggs for his annual census. It's a task more grubby than anyone can possibly imagine!
