Matt Baker meets some of the local crafts people keeping rural skills alive – heritage builders, a weathervanemaker and a stained glass artist. Ellie Harrison is visiting a farm where the owners are potty about poultry, breeding turkeys for their eggs rather than meat. She’s also exploring the ultimate wildlife garden. Sean Fletcher is discovering the area’s links with the humble daffodil. And Adam Henson is meeting the three-year-old girl already getting to grips with lambing.

Hundreds of years after becoming extinct, beavers are back on mainland Britain. Charlotte Smith investigates why some people are trying to save them, while others want them culled.
