Country Life September 9 2015

This week in Country Life we celebrate our astonishing Queen, who becomes Britain’s longest-reigning monarch today.

We also speak to Cotswold landowner Lord Vestey about the importance of continuity, we reveal our essential guide to the most delightful Cotswold market towns, we visit Westonbirt House, a fine ensemble of Victorian architecture, we enjoy some expert tuition on the River Test and we get creative with oranges and lemons in the kitchen.
