Ffos Las(ID: 103000000010678)
Close to Ffos Las Racecourse, Carway, Carmarthenshire, the WT are creating native woodland alongside meadow and wetland habitat. The site was previously restored from open cast mining to low quality arable land. This project will transform the site, connecting habitats and improving the resilience of the landscape, allowing species to survive, spread and increase. The location is also a priority for investment to regenerate deprived communities, the land having previously formed part of the largest open cast coal mine in Europe. It is also part of a high profile project to commemorate the First World War as a 'Centenary Wood'. Car park, surfaced paths and signage/interpretation will enhance the experience and there will be a programme of events for local schools and the wider community.
