Clare Balding rambles in Leigh
Updated 8:25am Thursday 8th May 2014 in News
TELEVISION presenter and broadcaster Clare Balding was in Leigh to record the first in a new series of her BBC Radio 4 programme, Ramblings.
The show, which hears Clare walking through the countryside talking to interesting people, has been running for 15 years and has taken her all over the UK.
Clare tweeted yesterday morning she would be in the area, prompting plenty of suggestions from Twitter users as to where she should go.
She wrote: “Start recording a new series of Ramblings today, which makes me very happy. Walking this morning near Leigh-on- Sea.”
The most popular suggestion, though, was going to Old Leigh’s cockle sheds.
In the 26 series of the showClare has made, she has walked with Toyah Willcox in Worcestershire, with taxidermists in Boston, and with a bereavement walking group in Shrewsbury.
