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,do not recommend walk 1 .
