Right. Hopefully this will be okay.

1. An English rose
2. European country
3. Ghost story author
4. Disgraced editrix
5. English county town
6. Scottish (traditional) county town
7. Larkin's tomb

Link and odd-one-out as usual.

One answer gives two options for the connection, and one is spelled slightly differently from the connection.
