In celebration of International Day of People with Disabilities today we revisit an article from Open Country

Easy Going walkers at Burnsall in Wharfedale (Open Country)
The organisation, Open Country,  gives people with a disability the chance to access and enjoy the countryside by providing a wide variety of outdoor activities, including walking, cycling, nature conservation projects, wildlife study and outings. 

‘Build it and they will come’. It’s true – adopt a positive attitude to inclusive access and you’ll rarely be disappointed! Time and time again we find that sites and organisations that invest time, thought and yes, money in improving access will reap the benefits in increased visitor figures by the disability community.
