Earlier, I wrote a first cut of a possible solution to Nennius' battles of Arthur. Here, I update that blog, correcting a mistake and firming up the reasoning, but it still places Rheged in the North between the Don and the Tyne.
Having discussed the history of Coed Olaf, we now move onto the nitty-gritty of its environment, so here we discuss its current climate and the likely impact of climate change.
Coed Olaf is not only on former farmland but is a landscape shaped by its industrial heritage. Amman Valley was a mining valley and the towns between Ammanford and Brynamman were created when the railway came and opened stations.
Continuing our review of the social history of Coed Olaf, we discuss the tracks that cross the woodland. In particular, there is a beautiful old holloway with two stone-faced banks and trees arching over it like the path in Lord of the Rings.
Coed Olaf is a newly planted wood with parcels of new and old woodland. Here, we discuss the baseline of how much was covered with trees in the past and if there is any evidence of previous woodland within the landscape.
Coed Olaf comprises old, established woods and newly planted wood. The new trees have been planted on former farmland, and here we explain what we know of the farming history of the land.
2022 has been a tough year for sales and costs. Steenbergs has reduced its environmental impact, by cutting water use and waste and eliminating electricity from fossil fuels. We are carbon neutral and zero waste to landfill.
