Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages season 3 episodes list:
Penelope Keith, one of Britain's best loved actors and a villager herself for 38 years, goes in search of more Hidden Villages in a new series that takes in North Yorkshire, Argyll and Bute, Pembrokeshire, and starts with the Cotswolds. Penelope's Cotswold journey starts in the celebrated village of Bibury, and an area that her old friend Jilly Cooper describes as a magnet for some of the most famous faces in the land. The tour also includes Kelmscott, the home of William Morris; Slad, the village setting of Laurie Lee's book Cider with Rosie; Down Ampney; and Hook Norton, where beer continues to be delivered by horse-drawn dray. And in Ebrington, Penelope visits a perfect village fete.
In this episode, Penelope visits some of the most extreme villages in the show, as she indulges her love of ferries, mountains and lochs galore in seeking out some of the remarkable communities of Argyll and Bute. In Mull, she learns about the local Viking saga, celebrated by the villagers of Tarbert; before venturing north to see how the Crinan Canal created Scotland's most beautiful short cut. She visits the marble-filled Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute and watches a game of shinty in Tighnabruaich. There is also a visit to the island of Easdale, a place without roads, cars, and just one tiny ferry, that also plays host to the World Stone Skimming Championships.
