The County of Hampshire
This part of the South Downs is clad with 'hangers'. These are hillside copses characteristic of the village of Selbourne which was immortalised by Gilbert White the 18th century naturalist.
The county town, Winchester, has many historic and interesting features and was originally King Harold's capital city. It also has a magnificent cathedral which is now home to the bones of King Canute and his queen. Nearby is Alresford which features one end of the Mid-Hants railway otherwise known as the Watercress Line.
