Beware Cyclists!

It has come to our notice that a large number of cyclists were using the narrow back path through Nant Fawr woods and the new temporary path through the meadows on Sunday 9 September.

We cannot prevent this happening, but we can ask walkers to be extremely careful.  

Please feel free to report any incidents to us on

The Last Post

Well, actually this was the tenth post erected out of eleven posts, courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The post was placed near Heol Esgyn footbridge. Our eleventh and final post will be erected when Welsh Water (Dwr Cymru) have completed the installation of a new mains pipe in the meadows.   We are grateful to Kevin Date, our Ranger and all the volunteers who have helped us to complete this project.

The Jungle Explorers

On a damp August Sunday our intrepid volunteers set forth in Rhydypenau Meadow to find the fruit tress which had been planted by Cardiff High School pupils in 2015 but which this year had been almost swallowed up by bracken.

It wasn't easy, Derek used his scythe, the rest of us had shears. The bracken was about five feet high, but fortunately the trees were taller and had survived.  We found apples on some of them and  several plums on the plum tree. Success!
