    The Editor's Column At the time of writing it is Sunday, and a particularly warm and sunny day indeed for February. Wandering about the garden I saw the delicate snowdrops, and remembered a snatch of verse from Tennyson's poem about that flower which we printed in Life a long time ago. Last night I saw the bulky shape of a tawny owl swoop past the lounge window and settle in the branches of an acacia tree. I then remembered that Tennyson had written a poem about the owl, too . . . so that is why I selected it to appear inside this edition. To many people in the big cities, owls are something they read about in books. They never see one. That goes for many other kinds of wild life too . . . so we are more fortunate in Lincolnshire than many of us sometimes appreciate. If I lived in a city I would really miss seeing that gaudy-coloured woodpecker who comes pinching the almonds from our garden trees. And the rabbit that creeps in at night to nibble the early spring vegetable shoots . . . and the blue tits who have moved into the specially-built little house that the cat can't reach, high up on the wall. Every one of us in the County has the opportunity of witnessing this kind of thing I call the "magic of Lincolnshire." But rarely do any of us sit down and think much about it .. . until we are far from home. This edition contains another of Colin Carr's fascinating pictures of Lincolnshire places . . . this time it's Folkingham. The photograph, printed here, shows one of the delightful houses facing the Folkingham square. Called "Quaintways" it is an 18th Century house front, which was added on to a 17th Century bakehouse. Charming isn't it? I think it is now a tea room. The trouble with this column is I just get into the swing of writing it, and I'm full of other things to say, when all of a sudden I run out of room. I've only just sufficient space to say we shall be moving offices round about the time you read this. We have taken a top-floor suite above a bank in Grimsby's top-town area. In addition we have appointed a South Lincolnshire representative, Mr. Anthony Broad, who joins us from one of the local papers in Lincoln.

Reference Name LL/06/01

The monthly Lincolnshire Life magazine was founded in April, 1961 with the intention of championing the cause of Lincolnshire by recording its history, folklore, culture, personalities, dialect, art, etc.

The magazine has 'thumbnail' sketches of the history of all the county's towns and many of its 700-plus villages, histories of its major houses and castles and profiles of many of its smaller houses, in private occupation. There are accounts of major and minor incidents in the county's history, augmented through the magazine's correspondence columns and details of the lives of many of the county's personalities both past and present.

By recording aspects of the county's life which were happening at the time but which no longer exist, the magazine now has the only written account of some of these customs or events.
