Selborne Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Hampshire and New Forest...

Inhabiting a small corner of the picturesque South Downs, this delightful village was the inspiration behind the work of Britain’s first real ecologist, the clergyman Gilbert White (1720-93).

White pioneered the use of detailed recordings in the study of the natural world. His house, The Wakes, is a museum in itself but also contains an exhibition dedicated to the life of the Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Oates.
