I simply ask why spoil our countryside? (Gelligaer and Merthyr common)
These are just a few photos taken by the manager of the Gelligaer and Merthyr common project manager. They simply leave me asking why? Why would people flytip, damage and vandalise our beautiful countryside in this way?
Thankfully the commoners are running a two year project looking at the use of the common land and identifying potential solutions to some of the problems e.g. access points etc. They are also looking at off roading problems, fly grazing and issues around horse welfare.
I would be happy to see this initial two year project extended as there is a need for effective land management in the constituency. Some people make their living from the commons and supply meat to the Cig Mynydd Cymru shop in Treharris.
The common, those who use it and our countryside deserve better.
