Country Life July 1 2015

This week in Country Life we celebrate the Best of British and applaud our nation’s greatest glories. We also visit Bamburgh Castle, the defining landmark of the Northumbrian coast, we investigate the role bees play in art, we chart the history of the christening robe, we reveal the latest in interior design and we learn to cook with courgettes.
