On the walk Stephen visits Matlock and the surrounding countryside and learns about the long-lasting friendships and marriages that have been formed by the group.

Later in the series, Stephen also discovers why Rufford Abbey survived the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII and finds out how our Ice Age ancestors survived the deep freeze during an interesting visit to Creswell Crags.

Nature lovers are also in for a special trip when Stephen finds out more about the wildlife on show at the tranquil Sherwood Pines and the efforts being made to help native trees, flora and fauna survive and thrive at the always-popular Sherwood Forest.
