  • Your only neighbours are the red kites, rabbits, sheep and cattle that live on the hills 
  • Be a geologist for a day and hunt fossils after breakfast. Upper Gilwern Quarry is a site long known for it's preserved and complete range of fossils. One of the most common is a Trilobite from the Ordovician era (around 480 million years ago), and is called Oxyginus Corndensis.
