Basingstoke – Saturday 3rd February 2018

Basingstoke claim the author Jane Austen for their own, as she was born very close by. There is a bronze statue in the centre commemorating the 200th anniversary of her death (it always seems a bit odd to me celebrating the death of someone, but anyway…).  The Waterstones here is in the Festival Place shopping centre and set over two stores.  As the shopping centre is fairly new it doesn’t have any features to speak of, although it does have a rather nice mural of a Tintin book cover on the stairs.
