4WD training

This month the Park’s landrover has been used by Hampshire Search and Rescue for off-road training. On each of three days, Andy Phillips, a freelance trainer, together with three different volunteers, use an area adjacent to the main the site called Head Down. This is a Forestry Commission plantation just like Queen Elizabeth Forest but with restricted access. This allows use for more unusual types of recreation such as motorbike trials, field archery and vehicle training.

Hampshire Search and Rescue as the name suggests operates as a back up to the emergency services concentrating on inaccessible areas. During the season they help with marshalling at several QECP events where large numbers of people leave the Park and use the rights of way network.
