About Us

Since 1928, CPRW has been advocating on behalf of rural Wales.

We’re committed and passionate about safeguarding our countryside for the benefit of our communities, our biodiversity, our rivers, our landscapes, our language and culture and our visitors.

We care about our countryside and want people to enjoy and discover the beauty and bounty of our countryside, and our local members work hard to make this happen.

Our new bilingual magazine Hiraeth is produced twice a year and is free to all members.
