COUNTRYSIDE


UK government statistics indicate that 83% of the population live in urban areas with 36% living in large conurbations. It is therefore not surprising that a 2017 survey sponsored by Kerrigold, the butter company, found that “22% of the nation [that is almost 15m people] said that they haven’t been to the countryside more than once in the last 10 years. 11% had never heard a cow moo and 1 in 10 admitted that they had never heard a cock crow, except on TV”.
