October 2011- issue 52

This month Countryfile Magazine looks at Britain's best market towns and how you can make your town a success.

Plus we look at how being untidy in the countryside can help bees and butterflies, how to make beer at home and discover why leaves turn gold in autumn.

And of course, we reveal the finalists of the Countryfile Photographic Competition 2011

Bustling market towns are a cherished part of rural Britain. This month we look at what makes them special, and ask whether they have future. We also meet the local heroes and organisations that are making market towns a success.

Join us as we follow one of the UK's most delightful coast roads before heading inland to explore the Nine Glens of Antrim, each with its own character.

We show you how make real beer - it's easy, enjoyable and can save you money.

As autumn descends, our deciduous trees turn brilliant shades of red, gold, brown and yellow before shedding their leaves. Read the October issue to find out why.

It's that exciting time of year again as we reveal the 12 finalists for the Countryfile Photographic Competition.

October is the month for Halloween, so for your Great Days Out we look at Britain's haunted landscapes, houses and towns. Spooky stuff!
