Weatherman Walking goes Weatherman Driving
Last summer Snowdonia Classic Campers met up with Derek Brockway, the BBC Wales weather presenter who was filming for the new series of Weatherman Walking which features one of our favourite walks Cwm Bychan and the Fishermans’ Path.
Weatherman Walking is a TV series presented by Derek which showcases some of the best walks in Wales to inspire new and experienced walkers to get out and about into the Welsh countryside.
Derek joined us in the village of Beddgelert in the heart of Snowdonia where we introduced him to Poppy, the new lady in his life! After the introductions Poppy took him for a spin in the stunning Snowdonia countryside which brought back fond memories of a time with his uncle who used to own a VW campervan back in the 1970s.
