Walks Leaflets and Pathcare Team
We revised and updated the leaflet guides for five of our most beautiful local circular walks. These guides can be downloaded opposite. Your Council also aims to monitor the condition of footpaths in our ward so that they can be more effectively maintained.
Several of your councillors are involved in walking footpaths on a periodic basis to check on necessary maintenance. We would also welcome additional volunteers from the local community who would be prepared to walk defined walks perhaps once every three months and report back on any problems with stiles, overgrown vegetation, etc. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help with this and contribute to caring for our footpaths, please in the first instance contact our clerk.
COMMONS & WALKS
Llanbadoc Community Council is keen to encourage visitors and residents to explore and enjoy the beautiful countryside in this area. With this in mind we have put together a series of walks for you to download below.
Llanbadoc Community Council owns and manages 3 areas of woodland (commons) in Glascoed: Twyn y Cryn, Pantau Bushes and Jenny’s Bushes.
These beautiful woodlands are open to the public and the Council has a rolling programme to improve footpath access so that they can be enjoyed more widely. The Council also owns and manages a common known as Lower Common which is used for leisure activities. All these commons were obtained from Lord Raglan for a nominal price.
Llanbadoc Community Council Commons and Woodlands - the Council are fortunate to be custodians of a number of ancient woodlands. The woodlands are greatly valued for their individual beauty, as an intrinsic and key element of the natural and historic landscape and for the wildlife they support. Decaying Trees create valuable habitats. We are committed to managing safety in our woodlands in ways that do not compromise our objectives in terms of conservation, heritage, recreation and landscape, whilst encouraging public access. However, it is recommended that visitors keep to the paths at all times and it is advised that the woodlands are avoided in severe weather.
Llanbadoc Community Council take no responsibility for unauthorised activities on common land owned by the Council. Any such activities are entirely at your own risk.
