Dark Skies over Bryneg

Bryneglwys enjoys particularly low levels of light pollution, making it a good place for star-gazers to lose themselves in the sea of stars that make up our universe.

The image above (click to enlarge) shows the parish of Bryneglwys as seen in terms of environmental light pollution, as captured by an American weather satellite in September 2015. The Campaign to Protect Rural England worked with LUC (Land Use Consultants), who analysed the satellite data and created these ground-breaking maps showing how much light is spilling up into the night sky across Britain. If one looks at the maps for the UK as a whole, it becomes immediately obvious that Bryneg, sitting as it does in an entirely rural valley with no trunk roads, is blessed with particularly low levels of light pollution.
