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 .

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

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.

Caution!

This is no longer a relaxing walk with cyclists whizzing past at regular intervals,particularly during weekends.
