The Lakes

LIVING CHANNEL – Tuesdays from 24 May, 8pm

The eccentric and remarkable characters of the rural idyll of the Lake District return in a brand new series. Catch up with familiar faces from the first series – including Thomas Noblett (aka The Gladiator) and his increasingly ambitious challenges for charity, the eccentric Patrick Gordon Duff Pennington and his family at Muncaster Castle and the Neild brothers who must cope with extreme natural disasters destroying their livelihoods. There’s also ‘Pig Whisperer’ Rob, who left his successful career in the city to breed ‘micropigs’, and larger-than-life hairdresser Andrew Mottram, who shares his passion for wildlife. Heartwarming and addictive, The Lakes is a real-life soap opera about remarkable people and the stunning landscape which defines them.
