Longbourne

Saturday we went to Bristol and met up with Emily and went on our own mini BBC Pride and Prejudice tour. First stop was Longbourne...
This is the church by their house that they go to in the very beginning of the movie and where Mr. Darcy and Lizzie are married in the end.


Here are the gardens...
And of course Longbourne itself. Just before I took this shot this crotchety old lady (very Lady Catherine DeBurgh) came out and started asking us what we were doing there and what tour we were with and essentially kicked us off her land - apparently it is a private farm now. In that case they should really consider taking down the Longbourne sign out front. Luckily we had seen it all before she "discovered" us. Much better to ask forgiveness (which was not given) than permission in this case. Lizzie would have approved of our adventure.
