Clues To Go    -    Alresford to Liss

New Alresford is just off the A31, east of Winchester.  Alresford station is on the line of the Mid-Hants steam railway.

Much of the route passes through an area dotted with woodland copses, locally known as 'hangers'. The village of Selborne was home to the 18th century naturalist Gilbert White, regarded as England's first ecologist.

 

This driving route starts with a  short walk around New Alresford, from the aptly-named Broad Street, with its colourful Georgian shops & houses, to St John the Baptist church, the churchyard of which contains the graves of french prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars. You then drive north into Old Alresford & continue around the backroads east of Winchester, passing through  rolling farmland & small hamlets & villages. Some of the journey involves driving down narrow, single-track back lanes.
