Our members' magazine

Spring 2020 magazine composite covers image

The National Trust members’ magazine is published three times a year and is our ‘thank you’ for helping us to look after special places. Full of behind the scenes stories and beautiful photography, we hope it will inspire you about all there is to discover and be part of with the National Trust.

Spring 2020 edition highlights

The spring issue is a special anniversary edition of the magazine as the Trust celebrates 125 years of looking after beautiful, natural and historic places for the nation. Discover the three remarkable people who together formed the National Trust, and hear from staff, volunteers and members about how spending time in nature helps uplift and inspire them.

Find out how contemporary art installations are temporarily transforming Ickworth in Suffolk as part of £5 million conservation project ‘Ickworth Uncovered’, hear from the Trust’s National Specialist for Climate Change about how the Trust is rising to the challenge of a changing climate at the places we care for, and learn to bake bread like they do at the UK’s oldest working watermill, Winchester City Mill in Hampshire. 

Listen to exclusive audio interviews

We produce an hour-long audio version of each magazine, which is presented by Alan Power, the Head Gardener at Stourhead, Wiltshire. He’s also the presenter of the Trust’s podcast series and the BBC's Gardener’s World.
