We can sometimes have slightly mixed feelings about the British countryside; after all, we don’t have any world beating features in terms of height, distance or extravagance. There are no truly exotic or deadly animals, and no extremes of temperature. But, then, that really wouldn’t be British now, would it?
In all truth we love how the British countryside reflects perfectly the people who live in it. Whether this be the gentle rolling Yorkshire Dales, the fens and broads of Norfolk, the distant and cragged mountainous terrain of the Scottish Highlands or the patchworks of fields and hedges that characterise rural Britain. Nature in Britain means something homely, something comfortable and familiar, gentle and reassuring. Despite this there really is no lack of astonishingly beautiful moments, views and places to visit. Packed into out little realm is far, far more than any state in America could dream of having.
When people went off to fight for our country, did they do it for the love of the soot-stained and smog smothered cities? No they did it for the rural idyll, that utopian, peaceful, perhaps half imaginary but somehow undeniably British countryside was what lifted their spirits. Excuse us there, we came over all patriotic for a moment. NB
