England - Jane Austen Country
The Wayfarers

England - Jane Austen Country

 

One of English literature's best-loved authors, Jane Austen, wittily observed preindustrial English society from a sheltered and gentrified family life in Hampshire.

The literary walk of her lifetime takes us to many of her haunts, including Steventon where her father was Rector, and the gentle rolling countryside that forms the backdrop to much of her work. A walk through rich meadows and snug valleys, handsome estates and civilized landscapes intersperses two visits to Chawton, where Jane moved at the age of 33, and a talk and discussion with a Jane Austen expert. These take us on paths she probably used passing timeless cottages she would have known.

The week closes in Winchester, once capital of the ancient kingdom of Wessex, where Jane is buried in the ancient cathedral.
