    The Editors' Column Maytime, inspiration to poet and painter, writer and romantic, is with us again and how wonderful the Lincolnshire countryside looks as it stands once again on the brink of another summer. We are especially delighted this month to welcome Hugh Martineau to the first page of the editorial part of the magazine. H.D.M., whose academic ability and enormous sense of humour have made him widely respected in so many walks of life, has carved out a permanent place for himself in this county and you will find on page 30 some reminiscences from his pen of the town in which he lives-Woodhall Spa. George Levine, the well-known Norfolk antiquary, contributes another fine article this time on Old English Silver, and Peter Lely, ahead of his time as usual, pounds the beat on page 40 with a novel look at a novel Lincolnshire facetthe front at Skegness. We were delighted to be able to include a potted history of the thriving Lincolnshire Automobile Club and very thrilled when a large batch of hitherto unpublished photographs of Lincolnshire windmills arrived in the office from a former yellowbelly now living in London. The epic life story of Wing Commander Dowland, George Cross, appears on page 48 and its author, Leslie Hunt, asks us to point out that in a recent review we omitted to mention the price of his book. It is (just to set the record straight) 26s. 3d. and obtainable direct from him at 90, Woodside, Leigh-on-Sea. All proceeds to Royal Air Force charities ! We trust you have all admired the new Lincolnshire telephone directories and that you will be inspired to think carefully about the future of a certain little Lincolnshire cottage, a picture of which you will find on page 29. Until June then .. . Our best wishes to you all, COLIN CARR PETER CHAPMAN Joint Editors. This month's cover ...

Reference Name LL/08/03

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.
