Steventon, England

Jane Austen’s church

The Church of St. Nicholas, where Jane Austen’s father preached and she worshiped as a child, is located in a rural setting near the small town of Steventon in Hampshire County, England.  Jane Austen was born in 1775.

The original structure of this church was built centuries before Austen’s birth.  I marveled at the still-sturdy structure and the thickness of its walls.  Slivers of sunlight found their way inside to provide minimal lighting.

Services still held twice a month at 11:15 AM.
