  1. As an amature Fungi photographer i am devastated to what the NBGW have done to Cwm Felin Gat, they have distroyed the established examples of Fungi, and many ground cover plants,I know your group use this area, and further more they have closed of the free access to this area that the locals and others have freely enjoyed for over 50yrs, i am all for progress but plain distruction of nature especially in name of trying to represent the past, where as what nature had designed there was amazing and natural, a group are acting on behalf of the community to try and come to a compremise with NBGW to re-open the access, should you wish to join or assist in anyway please contact
