Point of Interest

Haldon Artifacts

It is difficult to imagine that less than a century ago Haldon was mainly heathland with scarcely a conifer in sight.

Now ,unfortunately,the peace and tranquility of this part of Haldon is utterly ruined by vociferous cyclists more interested in speed than in nature making it unsafe for walkers both young & old.

We,regrettably,only recommend walks 2 & 3.

Walk 1 (2.6 miles)

This short walk includes some of the paths recently created by the Forestry Commission. In addition,many intriguing wooden structures can be found along the route

Large Xylophone

You can play a tune on a large xylophone ,take cover in various shelters or learn about the history of Haldon.

A short detour will take you to the entrance of Lawrence's tower,Belvedere.
