Fred Dibnah’s Magnificent Monuments

Fred Dibnah's Magnificent Monuments

Another chance to join Fred Dibnah as he celebrates Britain’s great building and engineering feats, from prehistoric stone circles to the Humber Bridge. Fred travels around Britain to discover how some of our great buildings were constructed. Along the way, he meets the craftsmen who are preserving these buildings for future generations.

In the programme, Fred considers the development of castles from early Iron Age Forts to secret underground tunnels used during the Second World War. At Hadrian’s Wall, he marvels at the design of Roman toilets, while in Warwick he joins a band of medieval knights to test the castle’s defences.
