A ride in Haldon Forest west of Ashcombe Cross
A ride in Haldon Forest west of Ashcombe Cross
The soundscape: birdsong. Dense pine and Norway Spruce forest to the right blocks traffic noise from the fast A380 about 800 metres away. Just here there is a stand of larch. To the left, oak, pine and birch and a short ride down to a track for forestry operations. The ride pictured seems to have been laid out for public access. It reaches a hairpin downslope then leads back to the unsigned car park SX9079 : Track into the forest, Ashcombe Cross. No map seems to show exactly the paths and rides as they exist on the ground. The surface shows much broken flint: see SX8979 : Fallen Norway Spruce, Haldon Forest west of Ashcombe Cross.
