Rhos Pasture - A Hidden Gem

Rhos pasture occurs on poorly drained, mainly acidic soils in valley bottoms or upland fringes, and it can vary in species composition but the main indicator plants are purple moor grass and various rush species. 

It supports a wealth of wildlife, it delivers ecosystem services that are beneficial to the local environment, (carbon storage, water quality and storage and soil health) and it is culturally important, being associated with traditional crafts and skills. 

Radnorshire Wildlife Trust started the Rhos Pasture Restoration project in 2021, find out more about it here
