This loop trail begins and ends at Tonbridge Library and passes many places of interest to Jane Austin fans. Jane Austen was born at Steventon in Hampshire on the 16th of December, 1775, to George and Cassandra Austen. George's family had many links to Kent, and to Tonbridge in particular. This walk will take you to places known to be connected to the Austen family, including the school where George Austen was a pupil and later taught and the church where many of the family worshipped and where some are buried.
