The origins of
Dolydd Gobaith

From sheep pasture to community asset

2019: Land for sale

30 acres of upland sheep pasture came up for sale in Pen-Y-Garnedd, Montgomeryshire.

2020: CIC established

Fferm Goedwig Gymunedol Dyffryn Tanat Valley Community Forest Farm Community Interest Company was established in September 2020.

2021: Land purchased

In February 2021 the land finally changed hands and became a community asset.

New name

We held a competition for an appropriate name for the land that was less of a mouthful than the official name. The winning entry was Dolydd Gobaith (Meadows of Hope).

Hedgerow planting begins

Volunteers help plant hundreds of metres of new native mixed hedgerow
