Steventon Church, Hampshire, UK

Steventon Church, Hampshire, UK

The 12th century church, where the Austens were rectors and Jane worshipped, stands little changed from their day. Inside are memorial tablets to James Austen, his nephew William Knight and their families, together with the Digweeds who rented the Steventon Estate during the Austen-Knight period. Outside in the churchyard are their graves together with those of later Lords of the Manor of Steventon.
