CPAT PHOTO 2509-123 20th-century conifer plantation around the headwaters of the Nant Aber-nant and its tributaries. The plantation overlies a number of earlier now abandoned farms of probably medieval or early post-medieval date. The boundary between these farms and the unenclosed moorland beyond is marked by drystone walls probably dating from at least the 17th and 18th centuries. Photo: CPAT 2509-123.
