I totally agree with you, Jacky. I have copies of all of the Essex
Countryside mags from the early 1950s to 1990s. Although they take a
considerable amount of space, I'd loathe to give them up.
The one thing I lack and would love to have is a copy of the magazine's
indexes. If anyone has these and would like to sell me copies or even swap
them for some old pictures, I'm up for it, so please get in touch!
