Selborne Recreation Ground From Alton, drive along the B3006 into Selborne and past the Shops and Pub. Turn left at the Ketchers Cottages sign. The sign is diagonally opposite the Selborne Well Head. (If you get to the lay-by you have gone too far.) The recreation ground is up the drive on your left.
