The Elan Valley, Caban Coch Reservoir

Mark Stone's picture

The Elan Valley is, in my opinion, one of the most scenic and peaceful (if you can avoid the height of the tourist season) places in Wales. It comprises of several reservoirs created to supply fresh water to various towns in Wales & England (Birmingham being one of them). If you want to know more and take a look at what's on offer then I suggest you visit the official website. You can also find out lots of facts about it and the surrounding area here.

The elegant Foel Tower also known as the Birmingham Baroque, as it's the starting point of the waters 73 mile journey from Elan Valley to Birmingham, is a fantastic focal point which complements the surround natural beauty; a location well worth visiting.  

The nearby visitor center and cafe is open seven days a week between 10:00am and 5:30pm from Spring to Autumn.
