"The Hampshire Hangers are a belt of ancient woodland that clings to the steep slopes of the Chalk and Upper Greensand scarps, that stretch from Langrish to Binsted. The term 'hanger' is derived from an old English word 'hangra', meaning a wooded slope.  The area around the Hampshire Hangers has inspired any writers and artists.  Selborne isassociated with the eighteenth century curate Gilbert White, author of the ‘Natural History of Selborne’, and one of the  founding fathers of natural history recording. Steep was where Edward Thomas found the inspiration and material for the majority of his poetry. Jane Austen spent the last eight years of her life at Chawton, writing and revising her great romantic comedies.  The village of Selborne lies at the heart of the Hampshire Hangers. Of the ten selected walks in this book, six of the routes are along the Chalk Hangers to the south of the village, and the remaining four are largely confined to the Upper Greensand Hangers to the north and east. They range from 4½ - 9¼ miles and suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its landscape and will
help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer.  Many of the walks feature a pub along the route.  Halsgrove’s new-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the Hampshire Hangers."
