Cilieni (River) and flood plain near Tir-bach, Sennybridge Training Area 3
Cilieni (River) and flood plain near Tir-bach, Sennybridge Training Area 3
In the middle of one of the largest military training areas in the UK. Shows the main river in the bottom of a significant valley in the area. This river acts as the main drainage channel for quite a wide area and shows signs that it could rise 2m within its normal channel. The flat area on either side of the river is the flood plain, which acts as a natural surge reservoir during times of excessive rainfall, when the river is in spate. Picture taken near the finish of a large orienteering event that was taking place on the day - a convenient finish point because of the flatness of the terrain.
