Forest Fawr Geopark, Brecon Beacons

The Fforest Fawr Geopark area incorporates some of the most stunning natural and man-made attractions in Wales, including the breathtaking Carreg Cennen Castle, The National Showcaves Centre for Wales, Craig-y-nos Country Park, the wilderness area of the Black Mountain, Pen y Fan (the highest mountain in southern Britain), The Brecon Mountain Railway and the National Park’s reservoirs, rivers and waterfalls. The archaeological, industrial and agricultural monuments are an integral part of the Geopark's landscape and both man and wildlife have lived alongside each other in the Geopark for more than 7,000 years.
