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.
