After she found living with the Chapmans in Grayshott post office intolerable,
Flora found herself lodgings elsewhere.
From details in the 1901 census, although Flora herself was not there
then, we believe that this was at The Ferns in The Avenue, Grayshott.
At the time Flora resided there, there was no building attached to
the right, and her room (first floor on the right) would have been double-aspect
with the possibility, as she implies, of views to the South Downs.
Today, what is believed to be the original fireplace where she would
have 'destroyed her own scraps of writing' still exists in the room.
This picture of The Ferns was taken in
the 1960s when the house had been split into two accommodations each
with a separate front door.
