New Nature Reserve at Penwyllt
by PCW ~, 09 August 2011
A new nature reserve, Allt Rhongyr, has been established on Penwyllt hill.
" The reserve is an open access reserve, you are allowed to visit the reserve on foot for your quiet enjoyment of the wildlife present. Please keep dogs on a lead to prevent disturbing ground nesting birds and clean up your dog litter.
There may be cattle or ponies on site, please do not approach them or feed them. Additionally there may be electric fencing to keep them off parts of the site, please cross this with care.
The site features natural rocky pavements, steep scree slopes, and some sheer cliffs, please visit with care.
To get there: Turn off the A4067 half a mile south of Craig y Nos Country Park on the minor road to Penwyllt. Follow this road for 1 mile. Where the road bends to the right and climbs steeply uphill the reserve is on your left.
You can leave your car by the wall in front of the bungalow on the left / in the small layby next to the main entrance gate. Or access the reserve through the bridleway gate just down the road. Alternatively the reserve can be reached from Craig y Nos Country Park by following the bridleway via Rhongyr Uchaf farm." From the Allt Rhongyr website.
