Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild (Lincolnshire)

Ben Fogal, New lives in the Wild, S18 ep5 Lincolnshire

This week, Ben embarks on an adventure to Northern England, delving into an alternative lifestyle: vanlife.


He spends time with his host, Paul, to understand his decision to swap a conventional house for life on the open road. Ben gets insights into Paul’s life as part of a community of full-time nomads, who thrive off the grid in the UK. He also explores the challenges faced by this expanding group.

In Lincolnshire, Ben joins Paul on his 30-year-old transformed military truck, Roxy. They journey to the breathtaking coastline for an overnight beach stay. While Ben has seen van-life in the US, he’s curious about its viability in the UK, considering the stringent wild camping regulations.

Their road trip includes sharing a unique hobby and mingling with Paul’s community of fellow nomads.

Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild airs on Channel 5 on Tuesday, 30 January 2024 at 9:00PM.
