North East England

Incomprehensible dialects, terrible weather, a grim industrial backwater - these are phrases traditionally used to describe the Northern stretches of England. This Globe Trekker puts an end to the myth as we follow traveler Judith Jones through Yorkshire and Northumberland. Her journey begins in rural Suffolk, continues on to the university city of Cambridge, Sheffield, Bradford and York. Her journey concludes on a boat to the Farne Island, the ancient sanctuary of the monk Saint Cuthbert and a present sanctuary to the puffin.
