 Next to QE forest is an area of Forestry Commission plantation which is reserved for club activity of a sort not appropriate in the main country park area. These include 4WD training, motorbike trials and field archery which are all run by local clubs who carry insurance and affiliation to the relevant national bodies.

A recent event in Head Down was put on by the Raven Field Archery Club, a Petersfield based club which promotes archery in all its forms with the exception of bow hunting.
