Havens for wildlife

The BWT has 22 nature reserves across Brecknock covering a range of habitats e.g. wildflower meadows, old pastures, woodlands, limestone escarpments, quarries and peat bogs. These provide a refuge for creatures such as dormice, butterflies, bats, woodpeckers and moths plus a range of interesting and unusual plants e.g. globeflowers, toothwort and orchids.

Open to the public

All the Trust's nature reserves are open to BWT members and the public to visit for free, on foot, to enjoy the rich and diverse wildlife present. Please always follow the Countryside Code when visiting.

Managing the reserves

The BWT carries out a range of management work on the reserves, aided by its Reserves Work Party. Activities include maintaining and improving paths, cutting and raking hay, coppicing woodland and scrub clearance. Cattle and ponies are also used at low numbers to graze wildflower meadows at appropriate times of the year.
