Our members' magazine

Summer 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 with all there is to discover and be part of with the National Trust.

In the summer 2019 issue, readers will go on a journey to the Farne Islands in Northumberland and get closer than ever before to wild seabirds. Learn about the history of wildlife on the islands and what the Trust is doing to help take care of this magical place, such as the annual puffin count carried out by rangers.

National Trust Lead Curator Andrew Morrison explores the history behind one of the country’s great, yet little-known 18th century landscapes, Wentworth Castle Gardens in South Yorkshire. You'll hear how new research into the historic family at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire has led to a fresh understanding of the need for kindness, and foodies can make the most of the summer fruit bounty with delicious recipes for jam.

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.

You can listen to the audio edition for free on SoundCloud. If you have a visual impairment and would prefer to receive a CD – or know someone who would – email RNIB on businesslink@rnib.org.uk or phone them on 01733 375 370.
