On Mud Island, one would need a pair of Hunter boots for walking one’s corgis, for sloshing about in muddy fields and for hotfooting it down Oxford Street in the rain.

And what if one were to win a pair? Well, that would brighten one’s winter’s day, wouldn’t it?

In South Africa, the cold fronts and snowstorms we’ve been dished up lately have made us all feel the need to hurry up and jump into our Hunters, if we haven’t already done so.

ELLE DECORATION has one pair of these cool English Wellies ready to be snapped up.

To win them, show us what you love most about Englishness or what you think is extra-great about Great Britain. (Interiors, design, places, spaces. Kinda thing.)

These are some of our faves. Now let’s see yours. (Scroll down for full details.)
