Archway on which the D'Arblays' residence in Westhumble, Surrey, is commemorated. The "mock-Perp arch" is just to the left of the Westhumble & Boxhill Station, and dates to 1923 (Nairn et al. 514). It gives entry to a typically high-class Surrey development of exclusive houses on the site of the D'Arblays' Camilla Cottage and commemorates their stay there in these words: "In this village Fanny Burney novelist and diarist and her husband Gen. D' Arblay built their cottage 'Camilla.' They lived in Westhumble 1797-1801." Photograph, text and formatting by Jacqueline Banerjee. You may use the image without prior permission for any scholarly or educational purpose as long as you (1) credit the photographer and (2) link your document to this URL or cite it in a text document.
