Forest or Woodland, free entry


Coed y Bont is a community woodland situated on the edge of the village of Pontrhydfendigaid. It is made up of two adjoining woods, Coed Dolgoed and Coed Cnwch. Coed Dolgoed is a lower level, flat woodland of native broadleaf trees, mainly willow and downy birch with rowan, hazel, aspen and oak. Coed Cnwch is an ancient woodland situated on the adjacent hillside with old oaks, areas of hazel and some conifer trees. There is a range of visitor facilities at Coed y Bont, including two level accessible walking trails through Coed Dolgoed.

Coed y Bont Community Woodland Association helps to look after the woodlands in partnership with Natural Resources Wales, within the terms of a management agreement. Volunteers from the association undertake various maintenance tasks such as renovating and upgrading paths, installing seats and keeping vegetation in check. Their work has increased the diversity of habitats and species here as well as improving access to the woodland for local people and visitors. The association also organises events in the woodland including conservation days and seasonal guided walks.
