I hope you are enjoying the Gazetteer - there's some fascinating stuff in there. Here's a little scavenger hunt for you; the answer will be a place name mentioned in the corresponding chapter of Persuasion, and the question is taken from the guide book descriptions. For example - if the place name/answer is "London," the question is taken from the Gazetteer entry for London.
Warning: most chapters have more than one location named. Feel free to post your answers or comments here, and I'll put up the answers Sunday night.
Ch. 1 What building was formerly used as a place of worship?
Ch. 2 Where was King Edgar crowned in 973?
Ch. 3 Where is there an epitaph to the inventor of the Elizabethan ruff?
Ch. 4 What Island is situated between Cuba and Porto Rico?
Ch. 5 What city has a share in the fisheries of Newfoundland and Greenland?
Ch. 6 What town is known as the "Montpelier of England?"
