Come and join us if you can but do make sure you have a pair of gloves with you. It’s great to get out into this kind of area to really make a difference to it. It’s surprising how satisfying it is to get out, exercise with company while doing something so worthwhile. The wildlife will certainly appreciate your efforts.
Time Credits are available for this event.
Please let us know if you will be coming along.

We’ll meet the “Old Slaughterhouse” car park which is pretty easy to find.
Heading from Llanelli, at the first Kidwelly roundabout take the first exit and drive into Kidwelly and throught the town. Just over the humpback bridge, the car park is signposted directly on your left just before the bend that leads to the castle..
It’s quite a short walk but offers some spectacular views of hstoric Kidwelly.
Twenty years ago, Glan Yr Afon was a landfill site. It has now, however, been transformed into a large expanse of marshy grassland and is home to an abundance of wildlife, including one of Wales’ largest population of Bee Orchid – to date over 300 plants have been recorded here
New footpaths, financed by Kidwelly Town Council, with grant aid from CCW, provide a circular walk around the reserve and can be accessed by people of all abilities. The reserve also joins the Sustrans cycle track, linking the reserve to the Millennium Coastal Park.
The site, which borders the Carmarthen Bay and Estuaries Special Area of Conservation (SAC), is home to a variety of butterflies, including marbled whites, green veined whites, meadow brown and common blue. Linnets, barn owls, skylarks and meadow pipits are also frequent visitors.
