Winchester & Chawton - places you simply must go, if you are nearby
The Bridge Patisseire - YUM!!
The 'market town' of Winchester
The city mill - National Trust
Jane Austin's House Museum in Chawton
The donkey cart she and her sister rode ...
The table she where she wrote...
View from her bedroom of the stable
A house down the road - perhaps a friend lived there...
The Greyfriar pub
- across the road from Jane Austin's house in Chawton
I came to Jane Austin's house too late on my first attempt. I redeemed the day with 'research' at the Greyfriar pub - host to the most friendly locals I met in all my 'pub crawls' (really, they serve tea at pubs, too!).
It was near time for the end of day rush hour traffic. The dreaded inner-city slalom of roundabouts in Guildford lay between me and my hotel. So... I sampled two half-pints of deep-colored beer and chatted up my new pub-mates for two hours - to make sure I was safe on for the road.
