Paper & Crayons in the Woods

Bring your children along with paper and caryons to try out our woodland rubbing posts

We have had a lot of tasks to plan for, most of which we can’t start until after nesting season in September but one great task we have been able to do was to install a number of Rubbing Posts for visiting children to take rubbings of the types of interesting things that flourish within our woodland. We have 10 posts in all.

As you will see they look great and help visitors along the trail spot key animals, plants and trees. Download audio trails https://www.caerphilly.org/about-us/ you will spot the audio key sites along the trail to help you understand the history behind this great SSSI site which means it’s a special site of scientific interest.

The geology of the site is considered of great importance being one of only two remaining places where these extensive sequences of Upper Carboniferous strata can be examined. Coed-y-Werin designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of this. We have a great plan ahead of us and we are always in need of willing volunteers to help us with our tasks to look after this magical place.

If you would like to become a volunteer to look after Coed y Werin feel free to either direct message us on our FaceBook page, contact us through our Website or just call 07855 239 074 and we will be thrilled to welcome you to our great team.
