Explore Surrey this week with Countryfile

Anita Rani travels to Surrey to explore the revival of interest in growing hops there.


She meets the brewers bringing back the county’s fabled white bine hop, helps to get the hop harvest in and gets to sample an unusual brew made with fresh undried hops. She also joins Surrey Wildlife Trust, who are carrying out a survey of small mammals to see how effective wildlife corridors are.


Adam Henson is hoping for the right conditions to get the last of his wheat harvest in, and John announces which photograph the public voted winner in the Countryfile Photographic Competition.

Tom Heap is on the trail of one of the UK’s most loved animals, the red squirrel, and finds out what can be done to halt its decline.
