Each new episode, on Thursday evenings at 8:00pm,
will see Sunderland-born George develop the project, in collaboration with designer William Hardie, from its inspirational beginning to its finished design. During the course of the series, he will also visit other small-scale architectural wonders across the UK and Europe.

For George, Kielder is a nostalgic journey. He said:

"I remember coming here as a child on family visits and school trips. It's a real playground and people don't realise how inspiring it is. I wanted to put it on the map.

I got the idea of a tree house because I was looking for something which was the ultimate dream project and it fits in well - Kielder Forest is England's largest working forest and the Calvert Trust site offers accessibility and adventure for everyone.

We've never designed anything like it before. Its part tree house, part art installation and can offer a unique experience on a unique site."

Peter Cockerill, Calvert Trust Kielder Chief Executive, said:

"We are thrilled that George Clarke chose our site for something as innovative and special as the Sky Den Tree House.

Calvert Trust at Kielder has been providing challenging outdoor activities for people of all abilities for nearly 30 years and this exciting new installation fully realises our vision - disability has no limits."

Viewers will have to watch this space for updates and to see the completed design of the Sky Den Tree House.
