This is the scene across the bog looking along the dismantled railway north of Allt-ddu farm.

Cors Caron is a raised bog through which the Afon Teifi meanders. The bog covers an area of approximately 862 acres (349 ha). It is the most intact surviving example of a raised bog landscape in the United Kingdom. Cors Caron began to be formed 12,000 years ago, at the end of the last glaciation period. Detailed but concise scientific details can read on the Wikipedia page, from which my information was sourced. LinkExternal link

The Manchester and Milford Railway (which went to neither place) closed in 1965, but the track bed adjacent to and across part of the Cors Caron nature reserve is now used as a public footpath and the National Cycle Route No 82 (Fishguard to Machynlleth via Lampeter and Aberystwyth). This image shows the trackbed looking towards Tregaron (and Carmarthen).
