Elenydd SAC

This is one of the most important areas of hill land in Wales for nature conservation and is of outstanding interest for its range of breeding birds. Much of the hill vegetation is also of special interest, with Elenydd being the largest tract of blanket mire within the central Wales uplands as well as supporting extensive areas of dry heath. Elenydd is also important for its nutrient-poor upland lakes, which support populations of floating water-plantain. Heavy metals have been extracted from the Ystwyth Valley for over 1000 years. The heavy metal-tolerant plant communities that have developed on the metal-rich spoil tips, associated rock outcrops and ruined buildings are of special interest.
