Coed Nant Gain

On the other side and below the footpath between the Pentre and Trial Hill is Coed Nant Gain. Princes Gain is said to have sheltered here from the marauding Saxons in the 6th century AD when the forest extended for miles around and bears, beavers and wolves lived there.  

The profusion of ferns, insects, birds, plants, indicate that it has been there since the retreat of the ice-age 12 millennia ago.  Man has exploited the woodland for centuries, yet it retains much of its natural ecosystem.  It is being restored as a demonstration woodland pioneering Natural Forest Practice by its owner Iliff Simey.
