Cosmic Cambrian Mountains
Come and discover the Dark Skies of the Cambrian Mountains. The Elan Valley which is just a mile or so from Redwood Retreat is an International Dark Sky Park.
In 2015 the Elan Valley Estate achieved this status and became the first privately owned but publicly accessible park in the word to do so.
On the estate they were granted a silver tier status by the International Dark Sky Association based in Arizona, USA. this status means that the entire 45,000 acres of the Elan Valley are protected against light pollution for the benefit of those who live and work here, in addition to the many visitors each year. The status also provides sanctuary for the abundance of wildlife and nature which can be found by day and night on the estate.
