Paul Rose pulls on the walking boots and hits the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales

Presenter Paul Rose begins his adventure around the Yorkshire Dales in beautiful Wensleydale.

Arriving by train at Garsdale Station, he takes the community-run bus service to the bustling town of Hawes, where local volunteers also run the post office, library and petrol station.

After a visit to a farm that gives asylum seekers a new start, Paul gets on his bike to view the stunning scenery from the top of some very steep hills.
