Happy Autumn!

Here at The Chandos Clinic, the heating has kicked in, patients are coming in wearing fleeces, and the leaves are falling passed our reception window. For many of us, autumn is a favourite time of year, and while the rain keeps away (say it quietly!), what better time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful colours, take photographs, kick up fallen banks of leaves and fill your pockets with conkers (put them in your drawers to deter moths and by your skirtings to deter spiders!). Here are a list of places from The Forestry Commission to experience autumn at it's best, with walks averaging just 2 miles, so not excluding the very old or very young. Our own Westonbirt is top of the list, of course, as well as the Forest of Dean and the Quantocks. Nature at it's most stunning, so do go out and breathe it in!
