St Edmund's Church in the beautiful village of Warkton, Northamptonshire is an unassuming place - but it holds some of the most exquisite sculptures in all of Britain. Commissioned by the local Montagu family, these four Baroque marble statues commemorate the lives of four of their members. Two of the statues were created by Louis Francois Roubiliac, one of the greatest sculptors of Georgian England. Adorned with related poems by schoolchildren and other locals, this illustrated guide explains the history of St Edmund's Church, the Montagu family and the monuments they erected between the 1750s and 1830s. It also details their painstaking restoration in recent years and the role of the church in the community.
