Known more for its literary connections with Jane Austen and the gardens of the naturalist Gilbert White at Selborne, the Alresford district is typical gentle English countryside, and is fundamentally a product of the underlying geology. Commencing in the east, a journey westwards begins on the low lying sandy heaths and heavy clay pastureland around Bordon and Woolmer Forest, developed from the Lower Cretaceous sands and clays. Farther south-east around Petersfield, the characteristic ridge and vale country is founded on alternating sands and clays of the Lower Cretaceous Hythe and Sandgate Formations.
