Who cannot be impressed by the beauty of the countryside at this time of year. The rains of the last few days have made everything look even more beautiful. Lambs running round the fields, bluebells in the woods, birdsong everywhere – it just makes you feel good to be alive.
Those of us who are able to access the more remote places are rewarded with special treats but there are plenty of wonderful experiences to be had very close and accessible to urban areas.
Paths are better and the Chiltern Society have invested heavily in gates in place of stiles so that access is possible for those with mobility problems.
