For eight years, from 1809 until her death in 1817, Austen lived with her mother, her sister Cassandra and their friend Martha Lloyd, in the village of Chawton in Hampshire. The cottage is open to the public as a museum and after acquiring new funding, Austen’s letters have become part of the displayed collection. Here is a guided audio tour of the cottage from BBC Radio 4.
