Sir Tony takes on the Cumbrian Coast

He has a cunning plan: Tony Robinson

He has a cunning plan: Tony Robinson

TV presenter Sir Tony Robinson has been filming in St Bees and Cleator Moor, as part of a new series in which he walks along the Coast to Coast road.

But rather than concentrate on the landscape, the series will feature the communities and the foods that can be found en route.

The Coast to Coast starts, of course, at St Bees (the cycling route starts at Whitehaven) and it was there Tony met up with Chris Robson, talking to him about the village, its history and of course Chris’ wife, marathon runner Charm.

And at Cleator Moor the presenter – famous for his role as Baldrick in TV’s Blackadder – chatted to Dave Farrell of Cleator Moor Chamber of Trade. And seeking out local foods took him to the local Pie & Mash shop to try the produce!
