View over Nant-y-Moch dam
Taken from the scenic mountain road. If current proposals for the Nant y Moch wind farm are approved, the whole of the skyline in this picture will be populated with wind turbines, together with the slopes at the far end of the reservoir. To give an idea of the scale of destruction to this attractive landscape, the top of Bryn Gwyn on the left of the picture is less than 100m above the reservoir, whereas each turbine to be placed on the top of Bryn Gwyn is 143m from base to tip, thus totally dwarfing the reservoir and surrounding landscape.
