History, tradition, fieldsports, field life…The Field at Christmas has a place in every country house.In fact The Field, established in 1853, just as Charles Dickens’ was inventing Christmas as we know it, is as much a part of British country traditions as trees, carol singers, hot punch, hunting, shooting and merriment.

We wish you a Merry, Field Christmas.
