Celebrate spring with Wiltshire Life

Visit 20 heavenly gardens with the March issue of Wiltshire Life as your guide. From the Capability Brown landscape at Bowood and 25,000 more daffodils at Stourhead to 10 gardens open for charity under the NGS scheme, start the Year of the English Garden well prepared.

We also make Paddington Bear’s favourite preserve with Wiltshire’s Queen of Marmalade, who reveals her secret award-winning recipe; find out more about Christopher Wren’s survey of Salisbury Cathedral (‘a large and magnificent pile’); and catch up with the researchers working in the Stonehenge landscape discovering relics from a time when aurochs, elk and wolves roamed the stones.

You can also visit Swindon, Pewsey and Bratton, meet Chippenham MP Michelle Donelan and society entrepreneur Howard Spooner and find out how a Heritage Lottery Fund project is aiming to keep Wiltshire art in Wiltshire.

We focus too on issues that matter, such as air quality in Bradford on Avon, Marlborough and Salisbury, along with Christian care charity Alabaré’s 25th birthday.
