Haddon Hill

About Haddon Hill

One of the higher points in the south west of Exmoor National Park, overlooking Wimbleball Reservoir. Haddon Hill provides a really accessible way to experience Exmoor's wide open moorlands. It is a great place to the herd of free roaming Exmoor Ponies that live here. The heather and gorse provide a habitat for many species of insect and during the summer, including the rare heath fritillary. Haddon provides part of the water catchment area for Wimbleball Lake that serves Exeter for water. The Reservoir is easily accessible from the car park.  Classroom and field learning resources focus upon:

Reservoirs and water supply
Water conservation: the UK and globally
Flora and fauna, such as Red deer and heather
Moorland Management, such as Swaling
