Located along the river Ystwyth, Grogwynion is a Special Area of Conservation where the river deposits, spoil heaps and buildings of abandoned metal mines support a rich assemblage of rare lichens, including a number of species that are specially adapted to the concentrations of heavy metals, known as metallophyte lichens.
