Pendle. Penyghent. The Rumps. Trough of Bowland. Craven.

Good bitter. Early purple orchids. Brimstones and orange-tips. The bluebells in Brownsham Wood in early May (haven't missed for over 25 years). Gorse in March and April. The Halle Orchestra. Vaughan Williams. Henry Purcell. The Beatles. The warmth of people in the north-west. Settle to Carlisle railway. The A66. High Cup Nick. The Maize Beck. The Kinks singing Waterloo Sunset. Anfield. Sunday roast (chicken or shoulder of lamb). A pasty from Chough bakery in Padstow. My mum's chippy in the fifties. Garfield Sobers, Frank Worrell and Sonny Ramadhin playing for Radcliffe Cricket Club. The Strolling Bones. Richmond Green. Barnes Common. Hereford Cathedral. Tintern Abbey. Richard Hickox, much-lamented. Scilly. Trebah garden. Pentargon waterfall. Spring gentians in upper Teesdale. Wild daffodils in Tidna wood at Morwenstow. A fish finger butty. Morris Minors. The ice cream at Troytown Farm on St Agnes. Langdale Pikes. The old pierhead in Liverpool. My great uncle Jimmy's name on the WWI memorial in Salford Cathedral.

I think you mean "Bullingdon"...

Mine would be:

The Royal Oak pub in Wineham, West Sussex
The Striding Edge path on Helvellyn
The iron bridge at Ironbridge

There are many others, but those will do for the present.

I watched a programme yesterday about Grayson Perry, a potter and artist. He was creating two huge pots and painting them with small scenes which epitomise England. He's a fascinating man and cross-dresses, calling himself Claire when in character.
He asked folk all over England to submit photos of things they felt evoked England, and the results were interesting.

As I was cooking dinner this evening, our nearby village church started their bell-ringing practice, so lovely to hear.

If you had to choose just three things which, to you, epitomise your country (not just England) what would they be?
Hard to stick to only three, but mine would be:-

Church bells
Morris dancing
bluebells in a beech wood
