All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;
There's nothing mortal in them; their decay
Is the green life of change; to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified.
Its birth was heaven, eternal in its stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their day and night and heaven wide.

John Clare



A bequest is a way of guaranteeing that you will give something back to the countryside, which will be a quiet source of satisfaction for those who remain.

Making a Will is usually very straightforward, but it is sensible to seek legal advice. It usually only costs around £100 to draw up a will - much less than the legal costs which may be faced if you die without making a Will. DIY Wills may not be valid, so visiting a solicitor and getting professional advice is recommended. Click on the link below to find local solicitors who are members of the Law Society:
