Helen then heads over the border to Melton where farmer Alan Hewson, of Crossroads Farm, Eastwell, is reviving a much loved, but long gone, local cheese, Colwick - a favourite of agricultural workers in the past. Alan puts its prize-winning taste down to the rare breed red poll cattle, a once common breed in the region.

The episode airs on BBC One on Sunday at 5.45pm.
