The Warden Service is an integral part of the National Park service, operating both in the field and from the National Park offices in Brecon and Abergavenny. It helps to implement policies for conservation of the landscape and to facilitate enjoyment of the Park. Wardens work closely with specialist colleagues dealing with education, community development, conservation on farms, woodland management, access to the countryside and management of National Park Authority property. They are generally regarded as the front line contacts for National Park work.
The Eastern and Western Area Advisory Forum reports give an overview of the work carried out by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority Warden Teams. Read the Eastern and Western Area Advisory Forum reports for spring 2011 here:
Clive Williams: Vale of Grwyne, Crucorney Fawr and Hatterrall Hill.
Steve Smith: The Blorenge
Howard Morgan: Llangors to Hay on Wye to Capel y Fyn and Black Mountains down to Cwmdu.
Sam Ridge: Crickhowell, Llangattock, Llangynidr, Vaynor and Talybont.
Nick Jones: Estate Warden
The Wardens have varied roles and each Warden will lead on a number of important projects within the Park, from conserving and improving habitats to visitor management in honey pot sites. Over in the west of the Park Toby Small leads on the management of Carreg Cennen Woodlands whilst Judith Harvey co-ordinates the bog restoration work on Waun Fignen Felen. In Waterfall Country - one of our busiest areas for visitors - Helen Pye leads on the Waterfall Country Project. We will update this section regularly with more new and ongoing projects so keep an eye out!
