Garreg Ddu in Powys

Garreg Ddu

Although looking like a viaduct, it is actually a submerged dam.

Its role is to maintain a sufficient level in the Garreg Ddu reservoir so water can enter the Foel Tower and the gravity driven aqueduct to the Frankley reservoir in Birmingham.

The dam is only required to operate during times of extreme drought.
