Fred Dibnah reveals the genius, the vision and the sheer bloody graft that went into creating some of Britain’s greatest national monuments.
In this full six part BBC series Fred explores the early techniques used to build mighty Norman Cathedrals and 13th century Castles. From the skills of carpenters and stone masons who created grand country houses, to the back breaking work of the navvies who created vast labyrinths of canal networks. Finally Fred looks at some of the decorative work produced in his favourite period – the Victorian age.
