Mapperton Moments by John Montagu
Country estates and heritage properties like Mapperton are not easy to look after and a smooth transition between generations is vital. John Montagu and his wife Caroline had a bumpy ride when his father, Victor Montagu, a former Dorset MP, suffered from dementia in the 1980s. John has published Mapperton Moments, a diary of the difficult last eight years of his father’s life, 1987-95.
“John Montagu, 11th Earl of Sandwich, has written a sometimes darkly comic account of the efforts required to maintain and secure the future of the house and estate of Mapperton, in poignant contrast to his father’s inevitable decline into dementia. But the tale is far from bleak. The story is not, I’m happy to say, The Fall of the House of Sandwich.”
