Thames Path: Wittenham Clumps

Last Sunday’s Countryfile began with ten minutes on Wittenham Clumps.

Julia Bradbury gives an update on the beech trees planted in about 1740 and reveals that new trees will be hornbeam. There is film of the fields being turned in wildflower meadows and a reminder that Paul Nash returned many times over 35 years to paint the two hills.

The programme remains available until Sunday 25 August.
