Bordon and Whitehill
Hampshire's Green Town, Whitehill & Bordon is set in the Woolmer Forest, an area of heathland designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and ecologically outstanding as a wildlife sanctuary. The area has been a centre of military importance since 1863 when the War Office purchased 1,600 acres of training land.
The best way to explore the area is on foot. The Deadwater Valley Walk is in a 50 acre area of heath and woodland rich in wildlife, and is easily accessible. Edwardian and Literary Town Trails are packed with information about the history of the town and its literary connections.
Places to visit in the area include Go Ape! in the Alice Holt Forest, The Rural Life Centre near Farnham, Grayshott Pottery, Birdworld, the Mill Chase Leisure Centre and the Phoenix Theatre and Arts Centre. The Blackmoor Estate is famous for its fruit and this can be sampled at the Blackmoor Apple Tasting each October.
