Grand Designs Season 7 Episode 1 - Skipton: The 14th Century Castle (90 minutes)
Synopsis: Every Englishman’s home is his castle, but for Francis Shaw this is quite literally true. He and his wife, Karen, and their two young daughters, bought the ruins of a 14th-century castle in North Yorkshire and took on the remarkable challenge of turning a pile of stones into a beautiful home. Surrounded by rolling green fields, the location is idyllic; however, the castle itself was little more than four crumbling walls. Series featuring the challenges faced by eight people designing and building their dream houses.
