My Wildlife

What does wildlife or a wild place mean to you?

I realise how privileged I am to live in the countryside. Being in the Breamish Valley gives me daily access to mile upon mile of beautiful countryside: open moorland, high hills, undulating farmland and the picturesque River Breamish.

I never tire of cycling along the valley from Powburn heading towards Branton, Reaveley, Brandon, Ingram and on to Bulby’s Wood and Peggy Bell’s Bridge. Though I do have to be feeling quite fit to try and cycle any further up the hills to Linhope – I’m really just a leisure cyclist! The changing seasons mean there’s always something new to see. There’s always a new perspective.

I love to stop along the River Breamish and just sit…maybe have a coffee…just sit…and just be…

In the relatively short time I’ve been living in Powburn, the Breamish Valley has definitely become ‘My Wildlife’.

Wild places help to keep us calm
