Countryside Council for Wales
Landscape & wildlife Please note - A new body, Natural Resources Wales has taken over all functions and services previously carried out by Countryside Council for Wales. While the Natural Resources Wales website continues to be developed, some online services will continue to be provided on this web site.

Caeau Bronydd-mawr

The site is an excellent example of species-rich fen meadow, with associated purple moor-grass and rush pasture as well as species-rich neutral grassland in the drier areas. Additional interest is provided by the presence of acid grassland and wet heath on poorer soils. These grasslands together support a wide variety of plants including several uncommon and declining species.
