Limestone woodland which includes a small area of natural yew.
Coed Cilgroeslwyd is a compact reserve containing ancient woodland community, limestone grassland and pavement overlooking the Vale of Clwyd.
The NWWT purchased the reserve in 1964. Its importance was recognised in 1972, with its inclusion in theEyarth Woods and Rocks SSSI. The reserve is dominated by semi-natural broadleaved woodland on carboniferous but also contains a small quarry with limestone grassland.
The reserve is approximately two miles SW of Ruthin. It can be reached via a footpath from the A494, opposite Eyarth bridge. Parking can be found in a lay-by just over the bridge at SJ 127 553, where there is space for two cars - take care not to block the gate nearby.
