We have been very fortunate to have received £50,000 from the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme for 2018/19 (funded by Welsh Government and administered by the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action) to undertake improvements in and around Pen Dinas Hillfort in Aberystwyth.

The grant will be used to help greater access to a site of historical importance (Pen Dinas Hillfort, Local Nature Reserve and Scheduled Ancient Monument) and provide improved links to the Ystwyth/Rheidol Cycle Trails, the Ceredigion and All Wales Coast Path and other local amenities and attractions. Improving the path width and surface will increase access to a wider cross section of residents and visitors and target current barriers to the countryside.

As part of the project we will be looking to engage with local residents in order to involve them in the works being undertaken; this might be volunteering time to help with practical works or by providing ideas on how the site could be further improved; for further information on the project or on how you might get involved please email Countryside@ceredigion.gov.uk  or call 01545 570881 and ask to speak to a member of the team.
