Ilston Quarry, now known as the Elizabeth and Rowe Harding Nature Reserve, was worked until 1966. The quarry face is of national geological interest, notified as an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), exposing alternate beds of crinoidal limestone with clays associated with thin seams of coal, a geological exposure unique in Wales. Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail can be seen along the river, and Kestrels have been known to nested on the quarry face.

Training and Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers are an integral part of the structure and running of the Trust. Volunteers take part in activities within the Trust contributing skills, talents, experience and time, which often expand the skills-base of the Trust. They also help to contain costs, raise funds and help raise awareness with people through the local groups.
Volunteers can be any age and can be experienced or inexperienced. Whether you are looking for training and experience to pursue a career in conservation, looking to keep fit and meet new people in your spare time, or looking for a new challenge following retirement or during a career break, the Trust can offer you a range of opportunities!
