Coed Rheidol lies between 150 metres and 240
metres (500 - 800 feet) above sea level on both sides of the deep
gorge of the Afon Rheidol near Devil's Bridge in Ceredigion. The
woodland at Coed Rheidol is mainly made up of sessile oak trees
with some birch trees amongst them, and is selected as an example
of western acidic oak woodland. The Afon Rheidol flows swiftly with
a steep gradient through the site. The spray combined with the high
rainfall leads to high humidity which favours a range of rare
mosses, liverworts and lichens.
