An article in The Guardian on 24 November 2016 stated there was no evidence that Jane Austen ever visited Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire.
Wal Walker’s reply in The Guardian – 27 November 2016
In April 2017, Folly is not Always Folly, the first volume of Jane & D’Arcy, will be published in Sydney, with the second volume, Such Talent & Such Success, to follow later in the year. Jane & D’Arcy is D’Arcy Wentworth’s family story, written by one of his descendants. Folly is not Always Folly recounts her meetings with William Wentworth Fitzwilliam, the 4th Earl Fitzwilliam of Wentworth Woodhouse, and her visit there, the date and the occasion. Jane & D’Arcy will offer a key to much of Jane Austen’s writing, and the powerful emotional songlines that thread across her writings, which even today remain largely unexplored.
