Temples of Literature – Writer’s Houses via The Guardian

Did you know that Frances Hodgson Burnett really found a secret garden at Great Maytham Hall? And Lord Byron inherited a ruinous abbey at the age of 10 – what would you do with it? Practicing pistol in the hall, and keeping a tame bear and wolf were some of the creative uses to which he put his estate. The Guardian features these and many more stories – pictures included – in a fascinating look at the homes of famous British authors.
