Tymawr Convent at Lydart (near Trellech) encompasses around 25 ha of land and an area of neutral grassland (MG5) has been designated as a Wildlife Site/Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC).

The convent is a member of the Monmouthshire Meadows Group, and their grounds are now sympathetically managed by Gwent Wildlife Trust under a farm tenancy agreement. The grounds host a variety of habitats such as species-rich meadow, wet pasture, orchard, pond, stream, woodland and hedgerows. Species such as green-winged orchid, yellow rattle, quaking grass and tway-blade orchid have recently been recorded in the meadow.

This event is open to anyone with an interest in ecological recording. Please note that the site is an active convent and there is limited parking, so please ensure you register your interest with SEWBReC, who will send you more details nearer the time.
