The Elan Valley - a Photographic Tour
The history, heritage, dams and reservoirs of the Elan Valley.
by Karen Wren
West of Rhayader in mid-Wales are the 70 square miles of the Elan estate, known as the Elan Valley, owned by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water. With its huge reservoirs, massive stone dams, forestry and magnificent scenery of steep wooded hills mirrored and shimmering on the surfaces of these great lakes, the Elan Valley has justifiably earned itself the title of 'The Lake District of Wales'.
This book provides a photographic tour of the Elan Valley and is illustrated with colour photographs of the reservoirs, dams and local countryside while also giving an overview of the area, its history and heritage and the Elan Valley's role in supplying water to Birmingham and South Wales.
Please Note: this e-book contains colour images throughout. These will only display in colour on colour-enabled device. The book's overall display, layout and formatting will also vary depending on the device on which it is viewed.
