Wetland transformed for wildlife

Pwll Penarth

Sewage farm turned into safe haven for birds

Once part of the sewage farm next door, Pwll Penarth is now a wetland nature reserve managed by the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust.

Located between a bend in the river and the derelict Montgomery Canal the site is maintained in partnership with Severn Trent Water and was remodelled in 1996.

Islands and special gravel 'cliffs' were created to allow birds safe places to nest and the shallow margins attract waders, whilst deeper water is ideal for ducks and geese.
