Coed Ffos Las was bought by the Woodland Trust in 2014 to create a Centenary Wood to honour the special part Wales played in the First World War. This former colliery land and farmland, previously known as Maes Gwilym Farm, is 48.6 ha (120 acres) of rolling landscape with panoramic coastal views. The Trust plans to plant 90,000 trees by 2018 and over time the site will develop into beautiful, inspirational woodland with free access for all. There will be wooded areas with flower-rich glades, ponds and wildflower meadows, and a formal place of remembrance. It will also link with woodland at Ffos Las Racecourse to provide diverse and valuable habitats for plants and wildlife.
