Graig y Coed
This area encompasses a community woodland, being developed under the North Gower Woodlands Project, and playing fields.
The Wildlife Trust has taken the former industrial site, now the community woodland, under their wing.
Until recently the site was an eye-sore with spoil heaps and dereliction from defunct quarrying and mining activities on the site. Uncared for and unkempt, the site became vandalised and attracted a range of anti-social behaviour. With the grant from Cydcoed and hard work from the local community, working with the Wildlife Trust and the Llanrhidian Community Hall Trust, the site has been transformed. It is now secure, has improved paths and 3,000 trees planted recently with help from Penclawdd and Llanmorlais school children.
In all, around 10,000 more trees will be planted on this site over the next few years. There are also fantastic views across the Loughor Estuary.
Impressive views of the broad sweep of the Burry Estuary, south-east Carmarthenshire coast and uplands beyond. Opportunities to get involved in tree planting, becoming a site warden or generally helping to look after the new woodland.
