Author: A.T. Jones
Document Type: Monograph
The River Rhymney rises on Odyn Fach within the Brecon Beacons National Park at an altitude of 475m. It flows south through a small reservoir and then down a narrow steep-sided valley until it reaches Caerphilly. From here it meanders along a wider valley before reaching the tidal limit at Rumney.Cardiff .The total length of the river is 58 km and the catchment covers an area of 220km2. The objective of this document is to improve the range of wildlife habitats associated with the main River Rhymney by: a) undertaking a survey of the river corridor in order to describe the principal riparian habitats and determine the needs for habitat creation or improvement; b) identifying specific sites suitable for habitat creation or improvement and reaching agreement with landowners and other interested parties; c) implementing appropriate projects.
