Blaen Bran Community Woodland Sign, The Square, Upper Cwmbran, Cwmbran 10 July 2015
Wise words, unfortunately ignored by many judging from the litter left behind by the selfish, too idle to take it home.

Gwaun-y-Fferiad, "Priest's Moor" is, according to legend, the site of the hanging of a priest who lived there, and who fell out with Queen Elizabeth I. When I was a child, it was known as "The Plantation", a Forestry Commission run pine wood; I was told that it was one of many which had been planted in WW1 in a bid to reduce the need for Norwegian timber being imported at great risk from German U-Boats.
Since 1994 it has been run by the Blaen Bran Community Woodland Trust as a community woodland with many of the pine trees being replaced with native deciduous species.
