Here's a series of pics that go along with the article I posted yesterday.
St. Nicholas church in Steventon -- where Jane's father was rector. The yew tree to the left is where they used to hide the church key. It was such a gorgeous day...
Here's one example of a trail marker. This one was pretty tricky--it was hidden behind trees, and I was coming from the opposite direction.
A detail of some of the amazing painting on the church walls.
Phil & Sue Howe of Hidden Britain Tours. They rescued me in Deane and made sure I got into the Steventon church. For anyone out there who doesn't feel like trekking through the countryside, they've recently set up a tour highlighting all the Austen sites in Hampshire. I highly recommend them!
