The Nantmor Mountain Centre Association was created in 1963 by staff and students of Shenstone College in Worcestershire, who leased the farmhouse, Gelli Iago, from a local farmer. Since those humble beginnings we have grown and prospered, and many improvements have been made with the help of enthusiastic volunteers.

Over the years the Centre has been the base for so many courses for school children, students, scouts, and other similar groups.

In 1998, the surrounding area including Gelli Iago was bought by the National Trust following a national appeal. The National Trust is now our landlord, with whom we enjoy a very supportive relationship.

The Centre is run by a committee of elected Directors, all volunteers. The Nantmor Mountain Centre Association is a registered charity and also a company limited by guarantee.

The area is rich in history: the original Gelli Iago, the now ruined 16th Century farmhouse, still stands behind the Centre, along with remains of the old water wheel. The hillside above has been settled and farmed for millennia, and Iron Age hut circles can still be seen. Cwm Gelli Iago borders on the Yr Arddu nature reserve, a rugged heather moorland well known by geologists and ecologists alike.
