This busy tourist town guards the entrance to the beautiful Elan Valley where, in the 19th century, great reservoirs were constructed to provide water to Birmingham.

The area is a place of deep ravines, dense woodland, and swooping red kites, pony trekkers and anglers.

The valley’s visitor centre can be found at Caban Loch. The Claerwen Reservoir has a dam 184ft high.
