St Nicholas Church, Steventon
Here I am standing outside St. Nicholas Church in Steventon. Jane Austen's father was the rector here and Jane worshipped in the church as a girl. This beautiful part of Hampshire is very unspoiled and travelling around the area feels a little bit like going back in time. In Jane Austen's day there was no steeple on the church but other than that I am sure it looks very much the same.
