COUNTRY LIFE DECEMBER 15/22

All in moderation

Classical music is at a turning point

The way we were • Photographs from the Country Life archive

Poppy Field by Monet • Charlotte Mullins comments on Poppy Field

Where a giant walked • You can see from Wales to Gloucestershire from The Wrekin

The Life of the Robin

Lack’s wisdom on robins

A life with birds

Do your ears hang low? • Incorrigible and exasperating, vocal yet always entertaining and seemingly almost human, the basset hound is a force of nature, says devotee Flora Watkins

The hound of the bassetvilles

A modest manor Rippington Manor, Cambridgeshire The home of Peter and Gay Johnson • A delightful 16th-century manor house is revealed to have an unexpectedly complex history and an unusual story to tell. John Goodall explains

Why old is gold • The deeper designers dig into our decorative past, the more gleaming nuggets they unearth

An open-and-shut case • A symbol of both pagan fertility and Christian piety, the sensual and sublime scallop is achingly tender and blissfully sweet, says Tom Parker Bowles

Ready when you are • With renovations and materials in such high demand, high-spec historic houses, such as these three in Hampshire and West Sussex, should be snapped up

Dearly beloved • Old rectories, parsonages and vicarages we’re glad the Church didn’t hold on to

Local heroes • The dedicated

Give me...
