Walking Through History season 3 episodes list:
Tony Robinson embarks on another expedition through some of Britain's most historic landscapes. He begins with a towpath exploration of industrial engineering along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Setting off from Liverpool, he takes a three-day walk inland to Wigan, ending at the town's iconic pier as he traces the story of the waterway's chaotic construction and its impact on the development of Lancashire.
Tony Robinson walks from Melrose in the Scottish Borders to Holy Island off the coast of Northumberland, exploring the history of Northumbria. Over five days, he goes on the trail of one of the ancient kingdom's greatest sons - Saint Cuthbert. Through the Tweed Valley and across the Cheviot Hills, it's a journey through a murky history laden with myth. However, by investigating the communities, power bases and landscape of seventh-century Northumbria, Tony aims to understand the pagan land in which Cuthbert spread his simple brand of Celtic Christianity.
Tony Robinson travels along the north Norfolk coast through one of the least developed spots in Britain, finding out how the area maintained its rural, remote identity despite the dynamic industrial changes of the Victorian age. From the arrival of Bertie, Prince of Wales at Sandringham House to the opening of Cromer Pier, Tony's four-day walk sees him learn about key periods in the county's history. He explores prime shooting estates, purpose-built seaside resorts, salt marshes and disused railway lines as he discovers how powerful landowners were able to control development and even shape the railways to suit their needs.
