BBC Wales weatherman Derek Brockway will be on TV next week walking along the Vale of Glamorgan coastal path.

Mr Brockway will be joined by Olympic hurdler Colin Jackson for the episode airing on BBC One Wales on Friday, July 13 at 7.30pm as the pair walk from Sully to Penarth, taking in Lavernock Point along the way. They search for fossils and dinosaur footprints, as well as meet a local historian who sheds a light on the coastal path’s past that includes stories of smugglers, Irish raiders and the second World War.

The episode is part of the eleventh series of Weatherman Walking, where Derek Brockway walks around areas of Wales, sometimes with guests, and explores different aspects of the land.

Speaking about the journeys, Derek Brockway said: "It was great to lace up my walking boots and discover more of Wales’ wonderful walks. From fossil hunting in Sully to wild swimming in Snowdonia, the new series saw me explore an array of locations and unearth the history that surrounds them. This series also sees me joined on my walks by a host of special guests including Colin Jackson and my fellow weather presenter Sian Lloyd.”

All of the walks from across the series can be found on the BBC website where maps and instructions can be downloaded.
