Central Beacons MRT

Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team’s operational area covers south, mid and west Wales, the central area of the Brecon Beacons, incorporating Pen y Fan and the Ystradfellte waterfalls, as well as Cardiff, Caerphilly, the valleys and Newport.

In late 2016 a handful of team members (perhaps unwittingly) became ‘the face of mountain rescue’ when they agreed to pose for a BBC ident slot, a piece of film which has continued to appear on our TV screens regularly ever since! In 2017, they were in the news again when a devastating fire ripped through their team HQ. They continued to operate throughout the recovery process and the years since have seen them steadily rebuilding their team.
