Sarah Beeny follows a passionate group of locals as they try to rescue their village. With a grant from the BIG Lottery Fund, residents have 12 months to pull off their ambitious plans.
Sarah Beeny visits Tideswell in the Peak District, where residents are battling to halt the village's decline by opening a cookery school and introducing a quality mark to reflect the excellence of local produce. Helping them is village champion Tim Nicol, who has experience of launching new food brands in the UK, but experiences trouble selling his idea for pink granite worktops to the cookery experts. However, the project runs into more serious problems when shopkeepers view the new concern as a threat rather than an asset. Last in the series.
Sarah Beeny follows residents of the former mining village of Newstead in Nottinghamshire as they transform 220 acres of colliery spoil heaps into a multi-use country park, with a visitor centre and cafe, fishing lakes and a park, as well as playing host to a regular money-spinning music festival.
