Jane Austen's house
I have tried to get a photo of this Jane Austen's house for ages. Usually there is someone standing outside of it or a car parked there, granted this still isn't the best photo! It was here that the novelist Jane Austen, spent the last few weeks of her life. She had been living nearby at Chawton for several years, but in 1817 her health began to fail and she came to Winchester with her sister Cassandra to receive better medical care. However a few weeks later she died, and was buried at the Cathedral. The house is now a private home.
