Welsh Opportunity for Cave Men and Women

How would you like access to your very own network of caves? For around £150,000 you can have just that, by buying an area of woodland which is up for sale in the Brecon Beacons. 

The 2.5-acre site, to the north of Pontneddfechan, is at the foot of the Great Forest hills in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The site includes access to what have been described as some of the finest caves in Wales.

The five cave entrances are said to give access to over seven miles of caves. The agent says that the “commercial prospects” of the site have previously been under-exploited.

There seems to be no possibility of the building a home there, but it sounds as if the could provide a marvellous hideaway to visit and enjoy.

  1. Long before modern humans turned up, Wales was inhabited by what we would call cave men and women. You know the stock character with the animal skin sash, bone club, and the grunting. Sometimes they re at the mouth of a cave with dinosaurs stomping in the surrounding forest, which is a bit off. Dinosaurs became extinct 66 million years before any hominids whittled clubs. The earliest human remains in Wales were found at the Bontnewydd Paleolithic site. This was a jawbone and teeth from a Neanderthal child, thought be 230,000 years old. This site is one of only three in Britain to offer up fossils of a subspecies of human.
