The Elan Valley offers stunning natural beauty as well as historic reservoirs and dams. Often described as the most impressive of all the dams, the Graig Goch is the highest upstream out of the 6 dams, located at 1040 ft (317 metres) above sea level and is definitely worth a visit. A spectacular feat of engineering, Graig Goch is characterised by its domed valve tower and gracefully curved retaining wall with its series of elegant arches beneath, supporting a narrow roadway across the top of the dam. All of the Elan Valley dams are accessible by car with the exception of one – the Dol y Mynach, and there are many cycle and walking routes.

📍 Elan Valley Dams at Rhayader

Places To Visit Old Station Caravan & Camping Park

The Elan Valley Estate is an area of spectacular beauty and abundant wildlife right in the heart of mid Wales. The 73 mile long aqueduct, dams and reservoirs of the estate were constructed over 100 years ago in response to the growing need for the provision of clean water to the city of Birmingham during the industrial revolution. This master feat of engineering by the Victorians, enabled the water to flow from the valley via the aqueducts all the way to Birmingham by gravity alone. The Elan Valley not only provides visitors with the opportunity to visit the dams, but also to enjoy the stunning natural scenery.
