Cwm Ivy marsh was claimed from the sea to be used as farmland in the 17th Century and was protected by a sea defence which over the years increased in size and strength. Now after nearly 400 years as farmland the landscape is changing and the sea is moving back in.
Today only 2% of the meadows that existed in the 1930s remain. We're taking part in the Save our Magnificent Meadows project which will protect, conserve and restore wildflower meadows and other grasslands of the UK.
Grab your boots and waterproofs and set out for the unmissable mountains of Wales. Head for the high and rocky peaks of Snowdonia or the greener rolling mountains of the Brecon Beacons for an exhilarating day close to nature.
