Cwm Tywi from Coed Nantyrhwch, Powys
Cwm Tywi from Coed Nantyrhwch, Powys
At the foot of the foreground clear felled area is the renovated house of Nantyrhwch. Across the Afon Tywi, in Ceredigion, is the hostel at Dolgoch. More of the extensive Tywi Forest can be seen climbing to the plateau to the north-west. Cyclists in particular should note that the bridleway to the south from the hostel is very indistinct, and though passable (for masochists) deep tussocky grass and boggy sections make the route hard work, and dangerous after heavy rain.
The Tywi Forest
The Tywi Forest is a very extensive area of coniferous plantation mainly established in the 1960s over what had been, in the main, open moorland. Abandoned post-Medieval settlements and Bronze Age monuments reveal that this landscape was more intensively populated and used in the past. With many of the trees being well over forty years old, felling is in progress in many parts of the forest, including here, hence the good condition of many of the stony forestry roads. Young trees are also becoming well established in many of the cleared areas.
