Forestry road into Cwm Cloddiad, Powys
Not much used recently, (all the recent forestry action has been to the east) this track leads from the public road into the head of the valley and across on to Esgair Cloddiad.

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.
