Farmsteads make a fundamental contribution to the cultural landscape of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park.

The Bannau Brycheniog Farmsteads Characterisation provides an overview of the main characteristics of traditional farm buildings in the National Park, to help inform and stimulate research, support community initiatives, aid decision-making in the planning process and agri-environment grant schemes. It places farmsteads in the context of their landscapes, showing how people have adapted, lived in, used and shared the resources of the National Park, and then sets out the different types of farmsteads and buildings that you are likely to find before considering how they contribute to local landscape character.
