Exton Church
Day 4 - And the monuments at Exton.

Inside Exton ChurchExton Church of St. Peter and St. Paul has a wonderful collection of English sculptured 16th to 18th century monuments, some of the best in England. An enormous one to the 3rd Viscount Campden and dated 1686 is by Grindling Gibbons.

Exton Old Hall, which is in ruins, having been burnt in 1810, can be seen from the churchyard. This was the home of the Noel family, Viscounts Campden and Earls of Gainsborough. The new hall was built in 1811 and is private and out of sight behind the trees.
