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 .
