Stoneleigh Abbey.

SKU: 14988

This wonderful guide takes you through the story of Stoneleigh, from Cistercian Monastery to the current era of restoration and conservation. Various Lords, Jane Austen, Humphrey Repton, and even Queen Victoria enter the story of this majestic house on the River Avon. Austen surely found inspiration here for settings in her novels, especially Mansfield Park as is often discussed, but there are other themes here related to her novels as well. Pitkin guide. 20 pages. 2012. NEW. $15.00
