In 1809 Jane moved to Chawton village, near Alton, Hampshire, to live in a large cottage with her sister and mother. This cottage was owned by her brother, Edward. It was part of his estate, Chawton House. The house is just a short walk from the cottage.

The Austen's are buried in the local church graveyard. Jane Austen is buried in Winchester Cathedral.

The cottage is now the 'Jane Austen Museum', and is a must for all Austen fans.
