In Jane Austen: The World of Her Novels, Deidre Le Faye helps the reader picture what various properties might have looked like in the novel of Mansfield Park.
The east front of Biggin Hall, near Oundle, Northamptonshire. Mansfield Park was ‘a spacious modern-built house . . . well-placed and well screened.’
The north front of Rockingham Castle, Northamptonshire. Sotherton Court ‘was built in Elizabeth’s time and is a large, rectangular, brick building, heavy but respectable looking . . .”
The Seahorse Inn, near Corby, Northamptonshire. This was originally the 17th century dower house for the local landowners, the Brudenells of Deene, before being changed into a hotel in the 20th century. Thornton Lacey parsonage might have looked like this.
Houses in St. Thomas Street, Portsmouth, similar to the ones the Price family would have lived in.
