Forestry road and Esgair Cloddiad, Powys
Forestry road and Esgair Cloddiad, Powys
The main forestry road north out of central Coed Nantyrhwch meets the public road system about two hundred metres ahead. Across the valley is the young plantation on Esgair Cloddiad. The deep valley to the right is Cwm Irfon. At the junction ahead, another forestry road leads south-east along the forest edge high on the western slopes of Cwm Irfon.
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.
