Our members' magazine

Autumn 2019 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.

Autumn 2019 edition highlights

In the autumn issue we’re celebrating woodlands with Ray Hawes, the Trust’s Head of Trees and Woodlands. He shares his lifelong love of trees and why he’s spent a career looking after woodlands for nature and people alike. 

Discover what the paint colour on our walls can reveal about the past with Paintings Conservation Adviser Christine Sitwell, follow in the footsteps of the Anglo-Saxons at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, and try our exclusive recipe fresh from the new kitchen garden at Mottisfont, 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.

The audio edition covers the main articles from the magazine and includes extra behind-the-scenes chats with our contributors. It’s ideal for those with visual impairment, or anyone who wants to hear exclusive interviews.
