Abstract

The county of Powys is rich is peat with the most extensive deposits situated in the uplands of the north and west. The historical importance of peat-cutting in the rural economy is examined. Most peatlands are now drained or used for rough grazing, forestry and nature conservation. These practices, coupled with the slow growth rate of peat and its widespread erosion, render peat-cutting a non-viable alternative energy source, except for the most remote farmsteads.
