Inspired by Monty the Fifth Earl of Morley

Saltram’s very own Monty was thought to be the inspiration behind Indiana Jones. He travelled the world and went in search of the sword of soloman and various other treasures to bring back to his home at Saltram. You can visit the house and see the wonderful objects that Monty and his family collected over hundreds of years whilst they lived at Saltram. 

Every good explorer needs somewhere to shelter
