    Walking in East Hampshire

    Edward Thomas 

    Literary Walks in East Hampshire

    East Hampshire is home to some of Britain's literary greats. You can follow in the footsteps of these writers, including Jane Austen and Flora Thompson, on six self-guided walks. 
    The walks have recently been revised, the route instructions and maps checked and the guide leaflets brought fully up-to-date. The new versions can be downloaded below. (For details of how to download the Adobe viewer, click here). 

    Jane Austen Literary Walk round Chawton and Farringdon

    Gilbert White Literary Walk round Selborne

    Edward Thomas Literary Walk round Steep and Ashford Hangers

    Flora Thompson Literary Walk near Liphook. Please note possible flooding on the Sussex Border Path part of this walk - an alternative route is available marked on the Ordnance Survey map.

    William Cobbett Literary Walk round Hawkley

    We advise you to take an Ordnance Survey map with you on your walk in case a detour is necessary.
