Issue 154 - Autumn 2021

Aug 25, 02:00 AM

The autumn audio edition of National Trust Magazine brings together all that makes the season special with the Trust. We hope it will inspire you to head outdoors and take joy from the beautiful colours and bright frosty days, or to snuggle up at home with a seasonal recipe and a good book.

Autumn is a magical time to explore woodlands. Bushcraft expert Ray Mears shares his special lifelong connection with forests, and why we need to look after them for future generations to enjoy.

Elsewhere, you can find out how the Trust is joining the global fight against climate change and hear from four Trust curators who share insights into their favourite artworks from a new book, 100 Paintings from the Collections of the National Trust, which brings together the best of the Trust’s world-class collection.
