Miss Haversham

By capto  
This was taken in Eastgate House Rochester. My Grandaughter needed to have some course work images based on Miss Haversham the Dickens character. The house was empty at the time and we were lucky to get permission for the shoot.

Eastgate House is a grade one listed building of exceptional interest. It was built in the late 1590s by Sir Peter Buck, Clerk of the Cheque at Chatham Dockyard and is an excellent example of an Elizabethan town house.

Subsequently five generations of Bucks lived in the house and made their own changes and additions to the building. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the house had many uses, notably as a girls' school. It features as Westgate in Dickens' novel, Pickwick Papers and as the Nun's House in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
