Wonders of the Coast Path – 23 July 2020 – 23/7/2020 – July 23 – Thursday – ITV

Episode 1: North Wales and Anglesey

This first leg of his journey takes Sean along the coast of North Wales and on to the island of Anglesey.

His journey starts on the banks of the river Dee, just outside Chester at two stones that mark the beginning of the Wales Coast Path.

From here Sean travels to Talacre Point at the mouth of the Dee estuary, home to Britain’s rarest amphibian, the Natterjack toad.

Sean joins amphibian expert Mandy Cartwright for a night to try and find the nocturnal Natterjacks. Having found a male toad, Mandy shows Sean some baby toads, the next generation of this endangered species.

From Talacre, Sean travels to The Great Orme, near Llandudno. Here he explores the Great Orme Bronze Age Mines, the world’s largest prehistoric copper mine.

There he meets mine manager and caver Nick Jowett to discover how people mined copper more than 3,000 years ago. Plus archaeologists show Sean how to make a bronze axe head using the same techniques and equipment used by miners at the time.

Sean then travels via Conwy and the Menai Suspension Bridge to Anglesey. There, on the banks of the Menai Strait, he meets brothers Liam and Ellis Barrie of the Marram Grass restaurant to cook mussels and oysters farmed fresh from the waters of the Menai.

Sean finishes the North Wales leg of his coast path adventure at South Stack lighthouse near Holyhead in the North West of Anglesey.

He heads to the top of the lighthouse to meet South Stack RSPB Warden Denise Shaw, whose great grandfather worked as the keeper in the 1920s.

Then Sean joins Denise and shepherd Pete Godfrey to herd the RSPB’s flock of Hebridean sheep, that they use to help maintain and manage the habitat to enable the vast numbers of sea birds to feed off it.
