SO2509 : Covered Reservoir above Blaenavon

near to Blaenavon, Torfaen/Tor-Faen, Great Britain

Covered Reservoir above Blaenavon
Covered Reservoir above Blaenavon
The view shows a covered reservoir (bright green, covered with grass) on the right hand side with the service road to the reservoir in the foreground. The reservoir is located high above the industrial town of Blaenavon. Typical vegetation at this level on the hillsides is heather (in purple flower at this time of year, August) and the reservoir stands out quite distinctly, as can be seen compared with the terrain to the left. The activity on this side (N side) of the reservoir is the assembly and finish area for a large orienteering event, that was taking place on the day that the picture was taken.
