I had not imagined Delaford to be half as magnificent though. In Ch.14 Mrs Jennings says:
"The estate at Delaford was never reckoned more than two thousand a year,"
I realise there is no direct correlation between the grandeur of a house and the income of an estate, but two thousand a year puts Delaford in the same league as Mr Bennett's estate at Longbourne.
Oh well, it's nice to dream. Whether as grand as Forde Abbey or not, everything we hear about Delaford makes it sound idyllic and well worth dreaming about. ;-)
