Jane Austen walked here


Photo Information
Many old English country houses have scenes like this in the gardens, but these steps at Goodnestone Park were trodden many times by Jane Austen when she visited her brother Edward, who owned the house at the time. Jane mentions the house and village in her letters and it is said she gained inspiration for Pride and Prejudice whilst walking in the woods beyond these steps.
