Gas pipeline legacy

The green scar across and down the sides of Cefn Drum, above Pontarddulais, shows the route of the gas pipeline. I understand that the land was sown with seed collected from adjacent heathland (stands of Heather appearing dark purple on the photo), however, it's hard to imagine at this stage how heath could possibly regenerate given the intensive grazing on the grass-dominated areas of the common.

Hello Barry,
I walked this area on monday.More worrying(than the gas pipeline scar) for me was the level of illeagal fly-tipping here.An absolute disgrace.

I agree it is bad in some spots - report them if you see them is all you can do!
