SN8493 : Upper Cwm Clywedog

near to Dylife, Powys, Great Britain

Upper Cwm Clywedog
Upper Cwm Clywedog
This linear section of the valley of the upper Afon Clywedog follows a geological fault line. The rock on both sides belongs to the Foel Fadian formation of interbedded sandstones and mudstones. The crumbly rock erodes fast, and the slopes do not support vegetation due to the frequent occurrence of landslips and small gravel avalanches. The slope is very uniform because it is determined by the angle of repose of the loose rock on it LinkExternal link .
