Cwm Clydach RSPB Reserve, Nature Reserves Clydach, City of Swansea - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Craig Cefn Parc Clydach City_of_Swansea Wales
This mixed broadleaved woodland is home to breeding pied flycatchers, redstarts and buzzards. The area has been coal mined for at least 300 years. The reserve has a tramway running the whole length, providing an easy footpath for visitors. Indeed the first 1300 metres of nature trail is accessible to wheelchairs. The reserve was established in 1986, after the RSPB found a large number of unusual breeding birds here, more than anywhere else in South Wales. To get to Cwm Clydach Reserve, leave the M4 at junction 45. Head north on the A4067 until you reach a roundabout. Take the first turn off the roundabout to Clydach. You will pass INCO Ltd on your left. At a mini roundabout, go straight across, and almost immediately take a right turn off the main road. In effect this almost straight on. Keep on this road for 1 1/2 miles. You will come to pub called NEW INN on your right. The road then crosses a small river bridge, and the Cwm Clydach Reserve entrance is immediately on the right after the bridge.
