Evergreen - Autumn 2017

Evergreen is Britain’s best-loved little quarterly, a miscellany of this and that and things gone by which takes readers on a gentle journey around the highways and byways of Britain.

In spring, summer, autumn and winter we explore the beautiful British countryside, call at ancient churches and unspoilt villages, uncover quaint customs and curiosities, and share stories, snippets of poetry and the words of half-remembered songs with our readers all over the world.

Our travels also take us on regular trips down memory lane, with refreshing recollections of Britain in days gone by: fondly remembered summer holidays, visits to the village shop, favourite entertainers, memorable local characters…amongst the 148 pages of Evergreen you really can escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life!
