There's a lot of negative vibes on ARRSE. We complain a lot. But this beautiful nation was worth fighting for 60 years ago. I remember running one winter's morning beside the River Ouse. The sun was low but shone bright through a low mist, the ground was frosted and glistened and crunched beneath my feet. The towpath meandered behind Brampton church, it's ancient graveyard and Samual Pepy's house, to Godmanchester meadow and beyond. At that moment I felt very English and very content. So forget politics and the missus for a minute. What makes Britain beautiful to you?
