NORTH Pembrokeshire and the Preseli mountains will be featured as part of the BBC's new series of 'Weatherman Walking: The Welsh Coast'.

Celebrity Derek Brockway will be exploring the Pembrokeshire coast in the second episode of the new series, airing on Friday 16 April at 7.35pm on BBC One Wales.

Embarking on a 10-mile route from Newport to Fishguard, Derek is joined by archaeologist Dr Erin Lloyd-Jones and Onkar Singh Purewal (The Wedding Guru) as the trio explore all the stretch has to offer.

“The Welsh coastline is spectacular, stretching for nearly 900 miles, and there’s a coast path the entire length of it," said Dereck.

"Each bay and each bend is a site to behold, I’ve walked hundreds of miles around Wales but there are still corners of the Welsh coast I’ve never seen.

"The Welsh coast is full of contrasts; wild and rugged bays, popular beaches and just breath-taking views. There’s so much to explore, I can’t wait to get out there.”

Erin explores a megalithic quarry in the Preseli mountains where she is digging up the past looking to unearth the origins of Stonehenge’s famous bluestones.

"I'm delighted to be back with the team for another series, discovering more historical delights along Wales' coastline," she said.

"This year, we are all in need of a bit of escapism, and this series of Weatherman Walking brings just that, from the comfort of your living room.

“In this episode, two of my favourite things come together - Wales and stone circles.

"And not just any stone circle - arguably, the most famous stone circle in the world, Stonehenge.

"I have really fond memories of many visits to the World Heritage Site throughout my life, and feel so proud of its links with Wales.

"The monument is still shrouded in mystery, but this is an extremely exciting time as experts uncover hidden origins of the stones using the latest technology."

Derek’s journey starts in Newport’s harbour where discovers the area’s smuggling past before making his way through Cwm yr Eglwys to a nearby beach for a spot of kayaking.

He takes in the panoramic views of the harbour from Fishguard Fort before finishing in the quay.

Elswhere, Onkar visits the Cilwendeg Shell House, a 100-year-old ornamental pavilion decorated with shells from the nearby shoreline.

Also in featured in the series is a seven mile walk from in south Pembrokeshire from Dale to West Dale that sees Derek meet a local driftwood sculptor and join the Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team to help with a practice drill.

The eight episode series will air every Friday on BBC One Wales from this Friday (April 9).
