Quarry on south face of Ysgwydd Hwch
Quarry on south face of Ysgwydd Hwch
This quarry was opened up by the Forestry Commission many years ago for roadstone for the tracks in the then Brecon Forest; it was reopened and enlarged for the same purpose by the managers of what is now Brycheiniog Forest. The stone is a mixture of sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone at the top of the Upper Ludlow of the Upper Silurian; now labelled the Cae'r Mynach Formation on the British Geological Survey 1:50 000 Builth Wells sheet, although the new name does not yet appear on the Brecon sheet, where this exposure lies.
