The way we were Photographs from the COUNTRY LIFE archive

My favourite painting Frances Spalding • Noli me Tangere by Hans Holbein the Younger

They’ve stood the test of time • Glastonbury Tor and Wells Cathedral have long gazed at each other across the historic Somerset Levels

The Ark

A design of splendid convenience • Holkham Hall, Norfolk, part II The seat of the Earl of Leicester In the second of two articles, John Goodall revisits this celebrated house and the story of its creation in the mid 18th century by the Earl of Leicester and his widow

Just blame it on the weathervane • Once only made to resemble cockerels thanks to a papal decree, weathervanes now come in all shapes and sizes, from dolphins and fleurs-de-lys to gryphons and witches, finds Harry Pearson

We must restore local churches to local people • Parish churches may still be physically the centre of communities, but their redundancy as places of worship is becoming a national crisis. Simon Jenkins proffers solutions to the nation’s greatest conservation challenge, including deconsecration and looking to European models

My salad days • Obey the rules and there are few finer things than a salade Niçoise served in the shade of an old olive tree, believes Tom Parker Bowles

Rediscovering the Boy King • In the 100 years since George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon, stood alongside Howard Carter at the entrance to Tutankhamun’s tomb, he has been demoted to a mere financier. Now, the current Earl and Countess want to give their forebear his time in the limelight, says Eleanor Doughty

Proud plumage • With the Glorious Twelfth approaching, Hetty Lintell looks to feathers for inspiration

The designer’s room • Simple joinery and subtle lighting have dispelled the institutional feeling of former offices in Bath

Does this hue look good on you? • Paint your walls in colours that flatter your appearance, advises Eleanor Doughty

Desert-island neutrals

Way out west • Two vast and important estates in the South-West have it all, from copious farmland and rental income, to clifftop views and near-private beaches

Let there be light • Orangeries, be they the old-fashioned kind for growing fruit or more modern ones barely distinguishable from conservatories, certainly can brighten a place up

Awash with colour and inspiration • The garden of Wildside, Devon The home of Keith WileyA visionary, painterly approach by a nurseryman gardener has resulted in an extraordinarily brilliant display, finds Mary Keen

The greening of Ascension Island

Horticultural aide-mémoire

‘To decorate life’ • An artistic polymath whose murals were revered around the world, Sir Frank Brangwyn ended his days as a recluse after a crushing rejection, reveals Matthew Dennison

The life and times of Sir Frank Brangwyn
