Outflow of Llyn Fyrddon Fawr
Outflow of Llyn Fyrddon Fawr
Llyn Fyrddon Fawr is a natural lake that has been extended into a reservoir in the mid-19th century. The dam is made of earth with stone reinforcement. The water just spills over a small depression in the crown of the dam. Water from this outflow used to be diverted in a ditch dug 180 degrees clockwise around the hill and then down to the Esgair Mwyn lead mine near Ffair Rhos (source: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ).
