The Field

Aug 01 2021
Magazine

Published by Time Inc. (UK) Ltd The Field is a monthly glossy magazine dedicated to those brave souls who shoot, fish and hunt way beyond the call of duty. Since 1853, its staff has selflessly brought its readers the cream of rural life, be it pheasant shooting, dry-fly fishing or the distinct merits of Cheval Blanc. If you love field sports, errant terriers and very foxy friends at hunt balls, The Field is for you.

Letters

Buzzin’ at Blenheim • There’s far more to this impressive estate than Baroque splendour, finds Rupert Bates, with new builds and bees both featuring in its 21st-century sustainability initiatives

Country estate of the month • THE NEWHOUSE ESTATE, REDLYNCH, WILTSHIRE

Six of the best: Wales

Sounding the right note • It’s August, so, of course, talk turns to the moors, family days, Macnabs – and that old piano case, for Neil and Serena Cross

Guns had a short horizon and grouse turned by the flankers were crossing at an angle, giving some spectacular shooting behind. Phoines Estate Highlands • Twenty-six lines of butts set within five corries, each rising to 3,000 feet, offered a roving syndicate a red-letter day on red grouse

Community spirit • For too long the voice of the upland gamekeeper has gone unheard. Now, Regional Moorland Groups are providing them with a platform

GROUSE-MOOR MANAGEMENT: A BURNING ISSUE • Is controlled rotational burning an important tool to preserve moorland, prevent wildfires and keep carbon in the soil – or should we ‘ban the burn’?

Selecting the best guns for grouse • Shooting grouse requires quick reflexes and tough, reliable guns that handle instinctively and can be reloaded quickly. Here are 10 to take to the moors

Mackerel, summer’s glittering prize • Whether caught from boat, beach or pier with a simple lure, these pelagic beauties are part of the fun – and flavour – of the British coastline

Make way for the young thrusters • Don’t expect these youngsters to hang about – they’ll be over the gate before you get there

Bed and banquet • Reminiscing about the day’s sport over dinner is an essential part of a week in a sporting lodge – so it makes sense to splash out on a cook

Sherry picking • The fortunes of this fortified wine rise and fall like the bow of a Spanish galleon – so what is behind this much-maligned drink’s current revival?

THE (DRY) SHERRY SPECTRUM

For those in peril on the sea • A valuable aid to maritime safety, Britain’s lighthouses are also marvels of engineering; The Field picks five of its favourites

TOP 5 LIGHTHOUSES • It is difficult to pick a top five from more than 300 lighthouses, but here’s The Field’s view from the crow’s nest.

Electric dreams • How easy is it...
