The East Hampshire Hangers are located in the English county of Hampshire and form a line of hills with steep scarps that marks the eastern edge of the Hampshire Downs and its boundary with the Western Weald, an area of rolling countryside east of Petersfield and Liss. The Hangers run from the area of Farnham to Petersfield, before swinging eastwards to take in the north-facing scarp of the South Downs. The main settlements of the area are the villages of Selborne, Hawkley and East Worldham. The name is derived from the "hangers": long, narrow remnants of ancient woodland clinging to the steep scarp slopes. Examples include Milking Hanger, Warner's Hanger and Wick Hill Hanger.
