Apethorpe, Northamptonshire - St Leonard

The present church was built in the late 15th century, probably on the site of an earlier Norman one.  It is unexceptional architecturally, and unfortunately it was locked on the day of our visit so that we were unable to see the spectacular monuments inside to Sir Anthony (d. 1617) and Lady Grace Mildmay (d. 1620).

1st gravestone:  Michael Raymer O.B.E. had a career in H.M. Colonial Service, serving in Nigeria, Falkland islands and Fiji.

A very clear instruction - "Behave".
