Fifty Years of THIS ENGLAND
People, places, literary landscapes, customs, curiosities, military heroes and notable events; royalty, film stars, craftsmen, churches, stately homes, country cottages and castles; childhood memories, county cameos, village characters, pomp and pageantry. Since
This England first appeared on the newsagents’ shelves in spring 1968, and subsequently began dropping on the doormats of postal subscribers across the world, these, and many other subjects have been featured on the pages of the magazine. Often accompanied by pieces of poetry, and illustrated with beautiful colour photographs and the whimsical artwork of Colin Carr, they cover a wide spectrum. They are, however, united by one glorious, matchless theme… England.
As we celebrate this golden milestone we are delighted to present a special 100- page magazine looking back on This England through the decades. On its pages you will fi nd a fascinating selection of articles, poems, pictures and letters that appeared during those 50 years. Whether you are new to This England or a longtime time subscriber who has been with us since the beginning, you will fi nd much to enjoy.
