Coed y Cerrig lies in a narrow valley at the
southern edge of the Black Mountains in the eastern end of the
Brecon Beacons National Park. The site is of European importance
for its alder woodland developed on the valley floor. The ground
flora is characterised by abundant large sedges Carex spp., and a
wide variety of wet woodland species including marsh marigold,
meadowsweet, opposite-leaved and alternate-leaved golden saxifrage
and the rare marsh fern.
