Powys Green Guide What's On Places for Nature

Places for Nature in Powys


Cwm Byddog Clyro
Nature Reserve Clyro

A small but incredibly pretty reserve with lots of insect activity due to the ancient and veteran trees. The woodland is of international importance due to the age of the trees. Lichens, mosses and other plants depend on this habitat to survive. The oak polypore fungus has been found on two trees in Wales, one of them is here in Cwm Byddog.
