Access to the Woodlands site from the A465 H.O.V Road Lay-by

When the dualling of the A465 H.O.V road was completed in September 2015, paths were constructed enabling walking/ cycling access to local areas and Beaufort Hill Ponds & Woodlands can be accessed from the lay-by ( The Garnlydan Rest Area)

Information panels have also been erected here, informing visitors of local attractions, including directions for cyclists to access the Ebbw Fach Trail.
