Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

News from the Down next

"Ode to Autumn on Magog Down" video

Over the past 18 months, many people have discovered Magog Down and appreciate the opportunity it provides to relax, meet friends, and simply enjoy the open views of the surrounding countryside.  Richard Allen told us that he has become a regular visitor over the past year and that he has also introduced a couple of Iranian friends, Ali and Elham Dariush, to the Down and they have become as keen on it as he is.  Ali worked as a professional documentary film editor back in Iran.  Together, Ali and Richard have produced a short video film of Magog Down showings its autumn colours, in which they describe what it means to them.  Ali has made the film available on YouTube for anyone to view -

Do take a look as the film gives a flavour of the site to anyone new and is a lovely reminder of Magog Down for those of you who already know and love the site.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
