‘we urgently need a fresh, positive and practical vision for the countryside’

AT a time of unprecedented change and uncertainty, it is perhaps worth reminding ourselves that the diversity of the British countryside which so many of us know and love is a wonderful synthesis of the interaction between geography, geology, biology and climate, moulded by the activity of thousands of years of human endeavour. Although the interactions between the landscape and those who make their livelihood from it have changed over time, the process has generally been one of gradual evolution. Now, the pace of change is accelerating rapidly. If we cannot find ways to respond effectively, we risk being overtaken by events and losing the capacity to shape the future of our countryside. I believe we urgently need a fresh, positive and practical vision of the future that will inspire and…

make britain green again

COUNTRYSIDE bodies have been jumping in early with their manifestos in a bid to put eco-friendly agriculture and better environmental protections at the heart of the pre-election political discourse. The Sustainable Food Trust (SFT), for example, is asking all parties to support farming practices that work in harmony with Nature. ‘We want to see productive farmland managed in a way that lets the natural environment thrive while still producing food for local communities and for the UK,’ says the SFT’s Honor Eldridge. She is adamant that this shouldn’t be a ‘rewilding approach that sacrifices production’, but believes agriculture needs to make significant changes—among others, the SFT advocates a return to mixed farming to mitigate climate crisis and halt biodiversity decline. Farmers that receive public support should undergo a sustainability audit, with polluters…

country life salutes the masterpieces

WE are delighted to announce the publication, on November 14, of a 120-page collectors’ edition from COUNTRY LIFE’s archives that celebrates the bicentenary of the birth of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Victorian Houses, compiled by Architectural Editor John Goodall, brings together a series of superbly illustrated and authoritative articles on Victorian architecture. It not only describes Osborne House, Cardiff Castle, Harlaxton Manor, Standen, Highclere Castle—familiar to a global audience as Downton Abbey—and Balmoral, but such masterpieces as the Palace of Westminster, Keble College and St Pancras Station. ‘COUNTRY LIFE has played a crucial role in the popular revival of interest in Victorian architecture,’ says Editor Mark Hedges. ‘This magnificent collectors’ edition illustrates the astonishing variety, interest and quality.’ Victorian Houses includes previously unpublished photography and archive images. It’s available from newsagents until December…

end of the line for fracking

CONSERVATIONISTS have applauded last week’s Government announcement that it has suspended fracking in England ‘unless and until further evidence is provided that it can be carried out safely’. Tom Fyans of the CPRE calls it ‘a victory for the community and for effective campaigning. It’s great when the science, the politics and the communities all come together’. The decision represents a significant change in policy, considering that, only a year ago, ministers were considering fast-tracking fracking through the planning system ( COUNTRY LIFE , October 17, 2018). The trigger for the reversal was last week’s interim assessment by the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), which stated that it could not exclude the possibility of larger, drilling-induced tremors, such as the one recorded in Preston, Lancashire, in August, which measured 2.9 on…
