first words from the editor

Autumn is the time……when we segue slowly from outside to inside as the days shorten and the light dims. It’s often a gentle season marked by the distinctive smells of damp leaves and lingering wood smoke, and a chill in the early mornings as a portent of the winter to come. In this issue we’ve got plenty of ideas for getting out – to witness the amazing natural wonders of starling murmurations (page 48) and discover what we can read in cloud formations (page 86). We’ve counterbalanced this with autumn projects you can settle down to if the weather closes in – pressing and framing leaves (page 21), making toffee apples (page 36) and inspiration for creating your own preserves (page 50), plus fabulous recipes for slow-cooked, fortifying dishes (page…

a month in the country

TAKE PART IN ALL SAINTS’ DAYThe day after Halloween, All Saints’ Day has been a Christian tradition since 609AD. Devised by Pope Boniface IV, it is the day to remember saints and martyrs. From St John the Baptist to Mother Teresa, there are more than 10,000 to celebrate. Acquaint yourself with some lesser-known martyrs – such as St Michael, who, in the 5th century, appeared to Cornish fishermen above St Michael’s Mount. Or St Winifred, the 7th-century Welsh nun, whose burial site in Gwytherin still attracts pilgrims today. Alternatively, set out on one of Britain’s pilgrim routes – from St Cuthbert’s Way in the Scottish borders to the 120-mile Pilgrim’s Way, running from Winchester to Canterbury.Marvel at the money spiderON STILL, SUNNY MORNINGS, look out for signs of the money…
