Classic looking serif font with a modern vibe

The font may be clearer to see on the website I took it from: http://monktonbarn.co.uk/

If anyone can let me know what this is I would be really grateful!

All but the 'M' are some version of Schneidler (I adore his 'k'). My guess is the URW medium weight.

So far, I've got Aeneas Light for the 'M' - but it's not perfect.

Absolutely brilliant - thank you! Yes the k is fantastic!

Ok so it turns out that the M is a different font to the rest. No wonder I was struggling. If anyone can tell me what the M is then that would be me sorted!

I think I've got it - Locarno Light for the M. Problem solved. Thanks again for your help.

Nicely done, Angela.

Damn. With those splayed legs that widened toward the bottom, one of the first fonts I thought of was Koch Antiqua. Outside Rudolph Koch's home country of Germany, the font was known in the rest of Europe as, yep, Locarno - the inspiration for Alan Meeks' Locarno. Most of his fonts were (splendid) manipulations of prior typefaces.

FWIW Aeneas Light is an orphan font, no longer sold by Trio.
Anyway, I prefer the Koch design.
