Jane Austen Day - Chawton Library, Austen House
Thursday 26 March 2020

To celebrate Jane Austen we are visiting the village of Chawton. On arrival at Chawton House, originally the home of the writer's brother Edward Austen Knight, we will have tea/coffee and then have a guided tour of the House. This is run as a historic property and houses the research library of Early Women's Writing, 1600–1830, a collection of over 9000 books and related manuscripts.

We will then have lunch at the Greyfriars Pub in the centre of the village.
