in consequence of the missive, Thanks for the clarification, penned by JoAnn
Blaize Castle was a triangular modern folly, built by Thomas Farr in 1776; it was moreover at Henbury, beyond Bristol, in the grounds of a neoclassical mansion, newly built in the 1790s by William Petty and named after the folly. This seems a clear case where Austen advantages those of her readers who have topographical and architectural knowledge.
