About the reserve

A small woodland site with commanding views across the Vale of Llangollen. Pisgah Quarry is a small and enchanting reserve with a mixture of woodland and limestone grassland.  Of particular interest is the calcareous grassland glade and the fern clad rocks in the ash woodland that have developed since the quarry closed in 1830. The site has commanding views of the River Dee, with Castell Dinas Bran clearly visible in the Vale of Llangollen and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by Thomas Telford in 1805, the tallest and longest aqueduct in Britain and now a World Heritage site
