The Wenallt

The Wenallt is an area of semi natural ancient woodland to the north of Cardiff.  The land extends into other woodlands to the north west – Cwm Nofydd, designated as a Local Nature Reserve and Fforest Ganol – a Site of Special Scientific interest.


The area is a well known local beauty spot and a popular site for picnics in summer. In spring there are displays of bluebells and other spring flowers throughout the woodland.
