Jodie Kidd explores the UK's great outdoors
Saturday 21 May 2011
Jodie Kidd goes hiking up the Old Man of Coniston in the Lake District in the first of three exclusive online TV shows about getting out into the UK countryside.
The series has been created in order to promote outdoor pursuits in the UK and encourage Britons to make the most of the beautiful British landscape.
It aims to encourage everybody from seasoned outdoors enthusiasts to novice walkers to get out there as often as possible.
“The series shows that everyone can enjoy a vast range of outdoor activities whether that is a leisurely walk, cycling or sleeping under canvas,” says presenter and model Kidd.
Having braved Coniston for the first episode, Kidd will be camping in the New Forest for the next installment and taking a series of short activity breaks for the finale, both of which will be published on independent.co.uk in the coming weeks.
