Montagu Monuments open to public six days a week over August

The Montagu Monuments are now open to the public every day of the week apart from Sunday over August, giving people unprecedented access to these extraordinary treasures.

Following a year-long restoration, the marble statues, that are considered to be of world-class importance, were unveiled earlier this year and have been open to public viewing one day a week since April, on Thursdays.

But during the month of August only, they will be on display from Monday to Saturday, between 10am and 2pm. Members of the public now have an opportunity to view the monuments in the peaceful surroundings of St Edmunds Church, a Grade I listed building in Warkton, Northamptonshire.

Visitors will be welcomed by a dedicated and knowledgeable team of volunteer tour guides who will help unlock the mysteries of the monuments.  

Pre-booked visits to the church are being offered throughout the year. To make a booking or for more information on the project, go to:; or call 07909 254598.

The Montagu Monuments Conservation Project is also seeking volunteers to lead tours of the monuments, or to get involved in the project in other ways.

Those interested should email:, or write to: Anne-Marie Sandos, Montagu Monuments Learning and Outreach, Boughton House, Kettering, NN14 1BJ.
