Llyn Llech Owain and Mynedd Mawr Woodland Park - Dog Friendly Walk inTumble, Carmarthenshire
This beautiful place lies in the triangle of Tumble, Drefach and Cross Hands in the Upper Gwendraeth Valley. The industrial boom of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries transformed these traditional small-farm areas into a web of terraced villages and colliery workings.
Today it makes up some 270 acres of natural beauty with approximately 90 acres of coniferous and deciduous woodland with the main Gwendraeth Fawr River running along the entire northern boundary of the site.
The park is a remarkable example of recolonisation by wildlife; some areas have been re-seeded but most of the abandoned fields and industrial spoil heaps have colonised naturally.
The former pasture banks of the Gwendraeth are now beautiful self-seeded Ash and Hazel woodland. The seeded grassland spoil has become a breeding ground for the Skylark - now nationally recognised as a scarce species.
Walk kindly added by
94 High Street Tumble offering dog friendly accommodation.
