the poetry of places

The West Country leaves a deep imprint on those who have resided there HURRAH for national parks. Seventy years of protection have not been flawless, but these places of beauty remain special and, despite the revolution in Britain’s prosperity since 1949, retain individual character, from Dartmoor’s forbidding tors to the New Forest’s mellow, pony-grazed glades, the Broads’ spooky fens and the Lake District’s glittering, silvery expanses (page 68). We aren’t the only country to protect landscape, but the dedication with which we do so says something about us. Previous, far-distant generations created the countryside, as a thing of (sometimes accidental) loveliness; we do the best we can—not always enough—to carry the torch. As much as humans have influenced landscape, so landscape has shaped the humans who reside within its folds. The West Country,…

tastes good, but is it made in britain?

CLIMATE-CHANGE figures make for stark reading. According to a recent study by the University of Oxford’s Joseph Poore and Swiss researcher Thomas Nemecek, the global food-supply chain alone creates 13.7 billion tonnes of carbon-dioxide equivalents. It’s hardly surprising, therefore, that this month’s report by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) suggests that changes in eating habits, a reduction in food waste and improved farm efficiency are key to achieving net-zero carbon by 2050. The public can make a huge difference by switching to low-emission producers—many of whom are British. British agriculture has a lower impact than other farming systems, with data by Mr Poore and Dr Nemecek showing that British and European beef produces about half the amount of carbon-dioxide equivalents than the global average. The sector, adds NFU vice-president Guy Smith,…

AS the pale golden dawn seeped out from the edges of the sky over the valley that stretches away from our hamlet on the Dorset/ Somerset borders this week, I was reminded how the soft, sensuous light of the transition from late spring to early summer brings our landscape into glorious focus. The birds and the bleating lambs on the hillside opposite our house are already in full voice when I take my labrador, Nimrod, for his first walk of the day. This morning, as he snuffled in the long, dew-sodden grass—now shot through with shocking-pink red campion and a blaze of canary-yellow buttercups—I was entranced by the sky, which looked as if it had been painted in pastel shades of rose and lilac, then streaked with wispy grey clouds. Beneath the…
