Whole Society Meeting visit to Haldon Forest Park - South Western Division

  • Venue - Haldon Forest Park, Bullers Hill

The second day of our annual Whole Society Meeting takes place at Haldon Forest Park.  The Haldon Forest area (1728ha) is made up of a large forest block along the Haldon ridge with a number of outliers surrounding it. Haldon Forest SSSI is designated for its dwarf heathland, raptor and lepidotera assemblages and nightjar. The public forest here is predominantly conifer having been planted after the First World War and now includes large areas of restored lowland heathland and rotational forestry. The forest also provides a unique outdoor experience and is a key tourist site for Exeter and Devon, with thousands of visitors every year.  Lunch will be held at the nearby Exeter Racecourse restaurant which has excellent views of the course and surrounding woodland.
