ENGLISH HOMES, GREAT AND SMALL, OF LITERARY GREATNESS: COLERIDGE'S, GEORGE ELIOT'S AND TENNYSON'S

The road from Bridgewater to Minehead climbs along the slopes of the Quantock Hills, and in eight and a half miles reaches Nether Stowey (top left). Here is the cottage to which Samuel Taylor Coleridge went in the winter of 1796-97, being joined later by Wordsworth, and where he wrote "The Ancient Mariner." At Arbury Farm (top right), in Warwickshire Mary Ann Evans, who wrote under the name of George Eliot, was born November 22, 1819. The old rectory at Somersby (bottom right) in Lincolnshire was, in 1809, the birthplace of. Alfred, Lord Tennyson. During 1868-69 he built Aldworth (bottom left), a house on the east slope of Blackdown, near Haslemere.
