This is by a vehicle turning area on the northern part of Coed Nantyrhwch, itself part of the Tywi Forest. This is the way heavy timber lorries will approach the public road system, and via a severe but fairly straight descent into the Tywi valley, a route southwards avoiding the steepest and most tortuous gradients.
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.
