About Selborne

A beautiful village hidden in the lush green hampshire countryside is noted for both it's immpressive church and through Gilbert White's classic field study - The Natural History of Selborne.

The church of St.Mary is of Norman origin, it has a nave arcade and additions from later periods. The church was greatly restored in the mid-19th-century by the great nephew of Gilbert White, the naturalist, who is buried here. White is commemorated by a glorious stained glass window depicting St.Francis. Included in the many fine treasures belonging to this beautiful church is an 800year old font.

The Wakes, is the home in which Gilbert White lived and died. He was born in Selborne Vicarage in 1720 and he made what was to be the first, and possibly the best study of nature in a difined area. His book was a classic and his work continues to be admired to this day. The Wakes, is a splendid house that is now the Gilbert White museum, showing much of his life and work. The museum also has a section which celebrates the life and times of Captain Oates.

Of interest in the area is Jane Austens house at nearby Chawton, the town of Alton and the mid-hants railway line runs close-by.
