Penmoelallt Community Woodland is managed jointly by the Merthyr
Tydfil & District Naturalists Society and Forestry Commission
The area is a natural limestone woodland of particular
importance due to the presence of an extremely rare species of
Whitebeam. Ley's Whitebeam, Sorbus leyana is only found in
one other site. This species can be found on the ledges and
cliff areas of the site, along with 10 metre specimens of Sorbus
rupicola. This site is a site of Special Scientific Interest.
The woodland can be accessed from the A470, on the outskirts of
Cefn Coed. A small carpark is free and available to use as a base
from which to start your walk and exploration of the woodland.
