Allt Y Bedw (Birch Hill)
Allt Y Bedw (Birch Hill)
Carmarthenshire

A small mixed broadleaf woodland with two small quarries near the town of Newcastle Emlyn.

A small mixed broadleaf woodland situated near the small village of Pentrecagal. The wood has two quarries, with one being the entrance into the wood. Once in the wood, towards the left you will find a few stone steps which take you up onto the bank of the quarry and into the rest of the wood. Some of the best areas, including some clearings and flat areas, can be found above and between the two quarries. The wood is designated as Ancient Woodland. This means that it has been continuously wooded for at least the last 400 years.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

Trees

Allt y Bedw is a broadleaf woodland with a variety of species. Despite its name, Birch Hill, birch is not the most common species within the wood, and you will find ash, oak, beech, young holly, and some impressive beech trees.

Wildlife

There are some signs of recent badger activity with a few holes spotted around the wood.

Features

There is a lovely handmade bench positioned in the main quarry. This position offers the most seclusion within the quarry and could be a great area for camping and as a central base for conducting woodland activities. Spotted throughout the woodland were several types of fungi and some rather striking fungi growing out of a tree.

Access, tracks and footpaths

There is good access into the wood with plenty of space to park in front of the gate at the entrance. There is also space within the quarry to park, and turn a vehicle around. There is a public footpath that runs through the wood. However, this appears to have not been used for quite some time.

Local area and history

A couple of miles away you will find the National Wool Museum in Drefach Felindre, which was once the centre of a thriving woollen industry. The museum is housed in one of the 24 mills that used to operate in this village.

The lovely town of Newcastle Emlyn is also a couple of miles away. There you will find the ruins of the town’s castle which was blown up with gunpowder in 1645 during the English civil war. The town also has several shops, pubs and eateries including the award-winning Indian restaurant Yasmins.
