The Fforest Fawr Geopark
In 2005 Fforest Fawr Geopark became the first Geopark to be established in Wales. As of October 2013 it was one of 58 Geoparks in Europe. The park has been sculpted by nearly 500 million years of geological history, and contains the highest mountains in southern Britain, the deepest cave in Britain, the finest collection of waterfalls in Britain and 7000 years of recorded human occupation.
The Geopark lies wholly within the Brecon Beacons National Park, occupying the central and western part of the park.
