South Wales & Borders Group: Exploration of the Nedd Valley, Powis.

August 11, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

Our August meeting will be a visit to the waterfalls lands of the Brecon Beacons. We will be

exploring one of the rivers which cuts through this limestone region, the river Nedd. In our

recent visit, we found one of the British Hymenophyllum species there, but both are recorded

on the BSBI website, along with Dryopteris aemula and other wet woodland species. With a

larger group, we may well find some interesting things, as well as seeing some lovely

waterfalls.

To see the best ferns we may have to walk up the river floor. If the weather has been dry, the

Nedd usually disappears underground by mid-summer. If the weather has been wet, however, it

could be fairly full. Please bring wellingtons if this is likely to be the case.

We will meet at 10:30 at the car park on a minor road which crosses the Nedd around 5 miles

north of Pontneddfechan (SN908 105). As well as wellingtons, stout footwear and suitable

protection from sun or rain as appropriate are advised. Please bring a packed lunch to allow for

flexibility on the day.
