The winner of this year's Church Guide Book competition is Warkton in Northamptonshire. The cheque and certificate will be presented as part of their Arts Festival, centered around the church, on the afternoon of Saturday 17th June at 2.00pm. The glory of the church is the stunning series of monuments to the Montagu family. These have recently been restored in a project led by the Prince's Regeneration Trust. Two of the monuments are by the sculptor Louis Francois Roubiliac, and as part of the event, our Membership Secretary, Dr Clive Easter FSA, will give a talk on Roubiliac.     May 2017
