Central ITV it seems deems it necessary to produce a series on the subject.

But it is not just the countryside they also don't care to visit our Stately Homes, because they are attached to British Colonialism and Slavery.

It isn't just black and asian people who don't visit these places...I would suggest that the majority of white people don't or only do so very rarely.
I’m not sure that’s the reason, aog.

Maybe they’re all too busy working running shops, being midwives, doctors and other vital things for “our” country.
Never mind aog...

In the words of a once glorious leader “Just rejoice in that news”
Pass the sick bag,Cloverjo.
This will all change soon thanks to the recent casting changes in Midsomer Murders.
I'm not sure why anyone visits Stately Homes...you've seen one you've seen them all.


'because they are attached to British Colonialism and Slavery.'

Is that your opinion or have you read that somewhere?

I dont think that statement is quite correct. I am a lifetime member of the National Trust and as such visit many of these places. There are Black and Asian people there, not a lot but certainly representative of the percentage of the population (outside of cities) that they are.

No, that is not entirely correct. Well not if you have an interest in architecture, artifacts and landscapes.
Same with National Heritage sites. Youngmaf...

It was stated in the programme.
They do, I saw a documentary some while ago about a West Indian ramblers club who had regular walks in the Yorkshire Dales.
I think one of the things city dwellers in particular may not be able to grasp is that Black and Asian people do not generally go 'en masse' or form sub clubs. They mix and so, well are not noticed.

No one cares about their colour just they are out enjoying our countryside. IT's people that keep trying to divide us that are the problem. Just ruddy live and let live.
I don't care to visit our stately homes. Why? Because they're boring.
I climbed Snowdon once, only to get to the top, to find about 50 rather large Muslim women, all in hijabs with hiking sticks, all doing a charity walk for breast cancer.

Times must have changed from this report.

I know of a council who a few years ago provided a free bus for ethnic minorities only, in an attempt to encourage them to visit the countryside.
If anyone watched the recent BBC2 documentary ‘Pilgrimage to Rome’ when several celebrities of differing faiths and no faith took the pilgrim’s route from the Alps to Rome, they may have noticed that among them was a Muslim television presenter, Mehreen Baig. One part of the trek took the group through woodland and interestingly Mehreen said that she had never been in woodland before and that people of her culture would think it odd to want to be in such surroundings. This report appears to bear that out.
"I know of a council who a few years ago provided a free bus for ethnic minorities only, in an attempt to encourage them to visit the countryside."

That would be racist in this day and age. Any kind of segregation is racist.
What is the reason that you are concerned/bothered why black and asian don't visit our glorious English countryside?

Not so, in the name of diversity 'positive discrimination' is quite in order.
