‘Three or four families in a country village is the very thing to work on…’ Jane Austen
Join us for a relaxed stroll through Jane Austen’s country village of Chawton. Walk in Jane’s footsteps and find out more about the village in which she lived; the people she knew, the places she visited and the importance of village life in shaping her writing. Throughout the walk, short readings from Austen’s letters and novels will bring her world to life.
