Steventon ChurchPlease visit!
  Godmersham Church Godmersham was once the home of Jane Austen's brother Edward (Knight) and much visited by Jane herself.
The site provides a wealth of historical and architectural detail of the Church and the village. More importantly, through membership of the Friends of Godmersham Church, access is given to a Godmersham discussion forum, a Friends' newsletter (with items on research, restoration and forthcoming Friends' events) and our Guided Tour service. Those intending to visit Godmersham are strongly advised to make use of this service because, for security reasons, we cannot guarantee that you will find the Church open. Only a few weeks ago I arrived at the Church to find two ladies from Georgia, USA waiting outside the locked door in the hope that someone would turn up to let them in. The Guided Tour service also gives access to parts of Godmersham not usually open to visitors.
The Church is a large, ancient and architecturally important building which is maintained and cared for by our small community (adult population of Godmersham village only just over 200). Through the Friends' Association, we will provide Janeites with a better insight into life in Godmersham and at the same time, raise much needed funds to continue our care of the Church. When it is completed the site will offer the facility of credit card payment for those wishing to join the Friends.
