On the edge of the Brecon Beacons, Upper Gilwern Hill is a site long known for its well-preserved and complete trilobites. The hill is made up of rocks from the Lower and Middle Ordovician, and the privately owned quarry is accessible to parties on request. The trilobite fossils here are plentiful and the chances of finding a good number is very high.

* Suitable for Adults only
* HIGH VISIBILITY VESTS or jacket essential.
