A walk around our local countryside and the benefits of the great outdoors for mental health

It’s been a lovely day and I said to my wife this afternoon, let’s go for a walk.

As we take Dilwyn, our Bedlington terrier, for a walk twice a day anyway, it was a chance to kill two birds with one stone, as they say.

Today, we went along the lane and then headed west and walked along that side of the valley.

It’s the slope that we live on and at the northern end there’s a golf course.
