Talyllyn Railway at Breckenhill

Talyllyn Railway at Breckenhill

Breckenhill is a small woodland creation project on land formerly used for grazing livestock. A large number of native species has been planted to maximise the benefit of the woodland for local wildlife and biodiversity.

Northern Ireland is one of the least forested countries in Europe, with native woodland largely removed from the landscape. As a result, projects like Breckenhill have an important role to play in increasing the connectivity of woodland habitats across the countryside.
