Claerwen Reservior


The Claerwen Reservoir was opened by Queen Elizabeth II on the 23rd October 1952  and is one of the huge reservoirs in the Elan Valley. We go and visit a when we are in Wales so this time I took a couple of photos from the top of the Dam


Looking down from the dam slipway and along the river Elan



Which you can see heads off along the Valley to the next reservoir 


 Go over the other side and you look up the Claerwen Reservoir with fluffy clouds reflecting in the water

I'll leave you with the panoramic view of the Reservoir

  10. The view from the top of the dam would be problematic for someone who doesn't like heights.
