Pwll-y-wrach Nature Reserve
This is the Trust's most visited nature reserve and was extended in 2012 to double its original size, with the help of a grant from the Countryside Council for Wales. It is 17.5 hectares of beautiful ancient woodland, which slopes down to the banks of the River Enig. Near the eastern end of the reserve the river plunges over a spectacular waterfall into a dark pool below, known as the "Witches Pool" from which the reserve gets it name. In the past local witches were drowned here!
The Black Mountains spread across Powys and Monmouthshire in Wales, and extended across the England–Wales border into Herefordshire where they formed an integral part of Hadrians wall. They are the easternmost range of the four ranges that make up the Brecon Beacons National Park. The picturesque Grwyne Fawr reservoir sits on the top and the landscape is dotted with ancient burial sites. The mountain is known locally as King Arthurs Table.
