Annabelle Bradley at the Malham Smithy with Anita Rani
"This week on Countryfile Anita Rani travels to one of her favourite places in the British countryside,
Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales.
It's a precious landscape that she's visited since growing
up as a child in nearby Bradford. She learns more about this unique landscape and how it was formed thousands of years ago.
She meets an artist, Katharine Holmes, whose passion, like her mother's and grandmother's before, is painting nearby
Gordale Scar. She meets Anita in the pouring rain to show her her latest work. In the village of Malham, Anita catches up
with the latest incumbent of the local smithy. Annabelle Bradley used to be a tax accountant, but when the smithy came up
for lease she changed career and her life took a completely different direction. Anita has been to Malham Cove many times,
but she's never climbed the walls of this famous limestone amphitheatre - until now. After a quick lesson she tackles
one of the biggest challenges she's ever faced on the programme."
