It also forms a part of the boundary of the [[Brecon Beacons National Park]]. The river and its [[waterfall]]s are one of the key attractions of the recently designated [[Fforest Fawr Geopark]].

The name is probably a reference to [[Saint David]], patron saint of Wales; 'pyrddin' means 'pure man' in the [[Welsh language]].

== Waterfalls ==
The Pyrddin is best known for two [[Waterfall Country (Wales)|spectacular waterfalls]], Sgŵd Gwladus and Sgŵd Einion Gam, the ''lady's fall'' and the ''fall of crooked Einion'' respectively. Sgŵd Gwladus is formed where a band of erosion-resistant gritstone known as the 'Twelve Foot Sandstone' creates a lip over which the river plunges. It is easily accessible by footpath from [[Pontneddfechan]]. A notable feature beside the fall is the erratic block of gritstone which was balanced so that it rocked - at least until Victorian times when it was displaced. The ruins of a small building close to the falls are thought to be those of a corn-mill.
== Habitat protection ==
The steep and wooded gorge of the Pyrddin like that of its neighbours, the [[Nedd Fechan]], [[Afon Mellte]] and [[Afon Hepste]] is home to many rare [[bryophytes]] which enjoy the cool humid conditions which exist here. Accordingly it has been designated as both a[[site of special scientific interest]] and a [[special area of conservation]]. <ref>[ Countryside Council for Wales website]</ref>
