Coed Porthamel

A limestone woodland with spring woodland flowers and many common birds

Coed Porthamel reserve is in two sections around Porthamel Farm: Coed Chwarel to the east and Coed Brain to the north. Coed Chwarelis dominated by mature woodland although there are also areas dominated by bramble alongside open glades. Here a wide variety of plants can be found in shallow soils on limestone. Coed Brain was dominated by sycamore but recent felling is allowing the growth of ash saplings
