Follow the link for all episodes

Based on an idea by David Driver

The story is set in the fictitious village of Puddlewick, Yorkshire, present day. It revolves around the Cockwinkle family who have been there for many generations. The Cockwinkles are scrap dealers. Puddlewick is a typical village with many colourful characters. The village includes a pub, The White Swan, a village shop, a church and a manor house. Many builders and land developers have their eyes on plots of land, which is causing issues galore.
