This is Adlestrop House, which Jane Austen visited at least 3 times as it was her uncle T. Leigh’s house. It is still owned by the family Leigh. “Jane Austen made several visits to stay with her cousin who was the Church rector and it is rumoured that the house and the grounds of Adlestrop Park were the setting of her novel Mausfield Park.” adlestrop.org.uk
Visiting Stratford, the RSC and the Cotswolds again in July this year was so much fun. Such beautiful spots!
Go here for more pictures.
It is believed that this is the door that inspired JRR Tolkien’s door to Moria (Doors of Durin, LOTR). You can find the door in Stow-on-the-Wold in the beautiful Cotswolds (St. Edward’s Church, West entry). It is known that he visited the Cotswolds many times.
I can’t believe it’s already three months ago when I traveld to England again, this time to Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Cotswolds. Being a huge fan of the British TV series Lewis and Midsomer Murders as well as of W. Shakespeare I simple had to visit these amazing places.
