Explore a precious piece of the Celtic Rainforest. In 2015, the Trust had the fantastic opportunity of acquiring Llennyrch, a traditional upland farm with an extraordinary surviving fragment of temperate rainforest at its heart. Together with the Trust's existing wood, Coed Felinrhyd (also know locally as Melenrhyd), this landscape has a place in Welsh myth and stretches from the shores of Llyn Trawsfynydd to the fringes of the Dwyryd Estuary. The steep banks of the Afon Prysor are thought to have been wooded for thousands of years - possibly since trees first re-colonised Wales after the last Ice Age - and a walk here certainly feels like a journey back in time. It’s a magical place that echoes with birdsong and where gnarled oaks are festooned with mosses and ferns.
