HOW lucky are we to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside, not just in England but anywhere in the world?

So we have to make the most of it and our walks expert Mark Reid helps us do just that.

Each week, Mark takes you on a different walk and this time he takes us to the stunning surroundings of Wensleydale
