Jane Austen at Epcombs: In search of Longbourn — 20 Comments

  1. Thank you so much for sharing. The road is especially interesting….just like you would’ve seen it in Jane’s day. It looks like a quaint sweet village….

  2. Loved it!! When can we relocate there? 😉

    If you have more photos, I’d certainly love to see them! 🙂

    Thank you, Abigail–your intellectual curiosity has blessed us all today. 🙂

    Susanne 🙂

  3. Perseverance wins out! Thank you for these great pictures and a glimpse into what Jane would have seen. I would love to see more!

  4. Fabulous. Now I want to move back to GB. Oh how we loved to ramble about while we were there and visit the antique shops, go to boot sales, and china shops. You certainly picked the right area.

  5. I love the little road you found, Abigail! It reminds me of the back way into my grandparents’ farm. As a girl, I loved to walk along and imagine.There were lots of berries in the bushes alongside that road, so Mom would take us kids and some pails and we’d have a bonding experience. Except our pails were always almost empty!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this. Fantastic! Loved seeing these pics and your adventure and would certainly enjoy seeing more pics if you have a chance to share them! It’s wonderful to have a real pic to help our imaginings of where D & E walked in your story. Thanks again!

  7. I do love seeing photos of these old quaint places that Jane Austen or her characters may have inhabited. Would love to see more. They are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I just started reading ‘Alone With Mr. Darcy,’ so this is even more interesting than I already would be in these pictures. I would never have the chutzpa to take sneaky pictures of someone’s private home, I’m just enough of a hypocrite to enjoy your voyeurism. :/ I’m loving the book but so far have only had to envision the snow covered countryside and the cabin where Elizabeth and Darcy are forced to shelter in the blizzard. Keep bringing us these beautiful variations. Please.

  9. I’d have read Alone With Mr. Darcy and loved it like all of Abigail’s novels. I’d love to see all of the photos of Hertingfordbury too!

  10. I am the lucky person who lives at Epcombs. The possible connection with Jane Austen has always fascinated us and your post has made me smile.
