Restoring the link between people and woodlands

Or contact us directly – Katie Barrett – katiebarrett@smallwoods.org.uk

In the meantime, we are sharing all sorts of tips and ideas to connect to nature in these unusual times. You can find us here:

Neath Port Talbot Council have secured National Lottery Heritage funding to help restore a historic peatland landscape for people to enjoy. The project is now being developed with the aim of releasing additional funding to enable the project’s delivery on the ground. Coed Lleol is one of the partners to enable the delivery of this sensational new venture. This exciting new project will focus on almost 6700 ha of upland landscape between Neath Port Talbot and Rhondda Cynon Taf.
The Project aims to provide new opportunities for local people and visitors to the area, to help them discover the wealth of natural and culturalheritage that the landscape has to offer. We aim to restore areas of lost peatland, creating habitat for rare and declining species such as water voles and skylarks!
