Warkton, St Edmund, Northamptonshire, **

Jenkin’s book accuses Warkton of “plodding political correctness” for failing to mention the magnificent Montagu monuments in the church guidebook, “instead directing visitors to the graveyard outside, where ‘stones bear the names of the humble village families…'”

But today, after an extensive renovation, guides greet visitors at the door, give tours, and sell books all about the extraordinary set of monuments.
