Back on the road, Coltrane stops in the village of Stilton for an eccentric cheese-rolling tournament. Here, fancy dress is obligatory and for the locals, this quintessentially British event is bigger than Christmas.

Then, join Coltrane as he heads west to Burton-on-Trent to meet Rev. Paul Sinclair, a leather-clad biker who operates the world’s only motorcycle funeral service.

Next, travel to Mountsorrel’s granite quarry, one of the biggest holes in Britain. At 10 times the size of Wembley stadium, this quarry is the source of stone for British motorways.

Watch as Coltrane gets the chance to blow a bit of it up on the second leg of his journey.

Next, at the Yorkshire village of Pateley Bridge, step inside the oldest sweet shop in England. With over 200 different kinds of rare sweets in the shop, Coltrane enjoys the delectable treats that have been in production since 1827.

For the final stop on this part of his intriguing journey, Coltrane arrives at the Wray Scarecrow festival, one of Lancashire’s top attractions.

With over 10,000 people visiting each year, local residents come together to make hundreds of scarecrows for the unusual event.
