Why tour here?

Daniel Wright said:

"The more I travel around England, the more I discover places where life carries on in a way that I thought had died out years ago – rural life, made up of small village communities where people know each other and where some still live off the land. The border country of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and South East Wales is one such place.

"The Forest of Dean, in particular, can feel like a forgotten part of England, like one of those valleys that fictional explorers stumble across, only to find dinosaurs alive and well."
