Viewers will find out this weekend if Beer has triumphed to become the country’s village of the year.

Actress Penelope Keith is hosting Channel 4’s new show and along with judges Alex Langlands, Juliet Sergeant and Patrick Grant have toured the country to find out the very best of what village life has to offer.

In the lead up to the final the judges have complemented Beer’s fishing and lace making heritage as well as its community spirit.

The village saw off Sherston, Clovelly and Llanllyfni in the heats before being facing Aberdaron, Mousehole, Colwinston and Polperro in the semi final.

The winner of the competition will win the prestigious title and £10,000 to spend on a community project.
