Look at what comes out at night!


Looking for something to do this weekend, then why not explore Craig Gwladus Country Park in Neath and take part in a free nature and educational Moth Morning event on Saturday 14th October.
To coincide with International Moth Night, nature expert Barry Stewart and Friends of Craig Gwladus will be professionally trapping moths overnight in the Country Park. Visitors are welcome to come along from 9 am – 10.30 am to see what has been captured.
Councillor Annette Wingrave, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Sustainable Development said: “Events such as Moth Mornings make discovering more about what’s on your doorstep an adventure everyone can enjoy.
“There is an astonishing variety of wildlife living in Craig Gwladus Country Park and visitors will be surprised by the variety of moths that the traps might attract. Moths come in a range of shapes, sizes and colours. There are some real beauties that live outdoors in our gardens and countryside”.
Craig Gwladus Country Park is definitely a location with a difference. Enjoy impressive views of the lower Neath from any of the top viewing platforms.
The Country Park offers miles of footpaths to explore, picnic areas, cascades and babbling brooks and tram roads.
The Park also has its very own magical fairy trail. Hidden amongst the trees are tiny fairy doors, which will give you another opportunity to look out for the woodland’s flying creatures! There are all sorts of adventures waiting for you at Craig Gwladus Country Park.
Anyone wishing to attend this free event is asked to meet at the middle car park in Craig Gwladus Country Park. Road directions off the A465 at Aberdulais, follow the sign towards Cilfrew. Please wear appropriate clothing.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
