Elan Valley Lake Reservoir, Rhaeadr

Ideal for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers, the 70 square mile Elan Valley Estate has five reservoirs and offers spectacular scenery. A series of dams were constructed at the end of the 19th century to provide water to Birmingham and many parts of mid and south Wales. There is a large Visitor Centre which is a good starting point for your visit.
