Jane Austen 200 - Rain Jane Trail
Tel: 01962 840500
A stunning trail of 12 Jane Austen quotes appearing only in 39 locations across Winchester city centre. A 40th quote is installed temporarily in the College Street garden opposite the house where she died.
This Rain Jane trail has been commissioned by Winchester City Council as part of its 'Feet First' campaign to get people walking - even in wet weather! When the quotes are worn from footfall, they will disappear, a fleeting tribute to an author whose life was cut short too young. We want visitors to rediscover the delight of reading the author's words, and to celebrate her as a local author who would unknowingly conquer the world with her six novels due to the timeless nature of the themes she explored.
