TV Presenter and naturalist Michael Clegg embarks upon a modest pub crawl that takes in some of Yorkshire’s most famous pubs. He samples local specialities whilst also offering detailed comment on historical facts and myths that are associated with the respective pubs. Clegg’s approach throughout is both light-hearted and endearing.

Michael Clegg was a well-known Yorkshire-born naturalist. He was a columnist for the Yorkshire Evening Post, a regular guest on BBC Radio 4’s Natural History program, and presented the Yorkshire Television series Clegg’s People throughout the 1980s. Clegg was an avid wildlife campaigner and had a wildflower and hay meadow posthumously named after him in 2004.
