Wonders of the Border - Offa's Dyke in Monmouthshire

On Thursday 15 April at 7.30pm, a brand-new series, “Wonders of the Border” will be broadcast on ITV Cymru Wales — and Offa’s Dyke is set to be the star of the show!

The six-part programme will see Good Morning Britain and Countryfile presenter Sean Fletcher visit more than 50 locations along our 177-mile National Trail and meet some of the amazing individuals and businesses who have made the borderlands between Wales and England their home.

The first two episodes are heavily Monmouthshire focused, with episode one featuring Devil's Pulpit in Tintern, White Castle Vineyard, Rockfield Studios & Angela Jones from Run-Wild, whilst episode 2 has Llanthony Priory and foraging in the Black Mountains.

We'll put up the online links to the episodes after they've aired, but make sure to catch each epsisode every Thursday evening on ITV Wales.
