Our members' magazine

Magazine autumn 2018 covers spread

Our 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.

In the autumn issue, discover the 'Great Gift’ of 14 Lake District peaks donated to the Trust in memory of fallen First World War soldiers. Join military history and nature writer John Lewis-Stempel as he takes part in a very special commemorative walk up the peak of Great Gable, 100 years after the war’s end. 

Dive into underwater landscapes with the Trust’s Marine Project Manager Sue Wells, and find out how the tide is turning to save our seas – plus what you can do to help. Meet the team bringing Clandon Park in Surrey back to life following a devastating fire. And we reveal the top five selling Trust bakes and cakes and share the tried and tested recipes to make them in your own home. 

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.
