photoblog image Claerwan Dam, Elan Valley

Claerwan Dam, Elan Valley

I featured the Elan Valley dams some time ago with a shot of one of the other dams in this series of reservoirs which supply the water to Birmingham via a very long pipeline.

It really is worth a visit if you are in the area near Rhayader and more details can be found at http://www.elanvalley.org.uk/dams-reservoirs/ and more details about this particular dam can be found at http://history.powys.org.uk/history/rhayader/claerwen1.html

I've only been there once (on a cycling weekend) and I've never seen it in sun nor with water coming over the lip. I like the view very much with the trees giving a glimpse through to the tumbling waters.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, one can spend, as we did, a whole day visiting all four dans in the valley.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. There are four dams altogether in the Elan Valley and it is a nice way of spending a day to visit all four.
