SN8375 : Work on leat above Blaenycwm

5 km from Cwmystwyth, Ceredigion/Sir Ceredigion, Great Britain

Work on leat above Blaenycwm
Work on leat above Blaenycwm
Extensive work is taking place on this old mining leat, which traverses the steep slopes above the Ystwyth, up valley from Blaenycwm. I wondered if it was to do was a miniature hydro-electric scheme, but just off the left hand side of the pic whatever-it-is leaves the leat and descends fairly steeply to Blaenycwm. One possibility is that the leat is being converted into a path, to take pedestrians and cyclists away from the sometimes dangerous traffic on the mountain road.
