, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire Wales UK Website
Carmel, near Llndybie in Carmarthenshire, is on a limestone ridge and supports a range of different habitats which include ash and oak woodland, bog, species rich grassland and open water. The local landscape is a historic mix of traditional agriculture and quarrying, where ancient woodlands, field systems, quarries and a network of footpaths are closely integrated. Within the reserve is an unusual lake - a turlough, with no inflow or outflow streams - similar to the furloughs of Ireland. When underground water levels are high the lake fills up, usually during the autumn and winter. In summer, water levels do not reach the surface and the lake dries out completely. This is the only lake of its kind known on mainland Britain.
