Gwent Square of the Month - August 2016



Located near Newbridge on Usk in mid Monmouthshire, this square contains 133 records of 69 species (see the species list from Aderyn here). However, the most recent record is from 1977! We would love a more up to date species list for this square.

The square contains upland and farmland, and there are a couple of rights of way and a lane running through the square.
