Explore nature's playground this summer with Wild Wednesday on the Sugar Loaf or Skirrid near Abergavenny. Build a den, create some wild art or simply soak up the atmosphere and get closer to nature - a wild adventure for a Wild Wednesday.
The Kymin might be known for Georgian gentility and picnicking, but it's also a haven for wildlife. With a mixture of open spaces and semi-ancient woodland, birds, bats, badgers, and even wild boar have made this small but special place home.
Controlling the bracken on the Sugar Loaf is vital to help preserve the heathland, which is an important habitat for grouse and other ground nesting birds. This year sections of bracken found on the common will be crushed, reducing its energy so it doesn’t take over and smother the heather. All of this is done to ensure the Sugar Loaf remains a healthy landscape for all that call it home.
