Tanygrisiau reservoir
Tanygrisiau reservoir
The reservoir is the lower basin of a hydroelectric storage system, the other half of which is Llyn Stwlan[1]. The diverted tracks of the Ffestiniog railway run on the opposite shore. The photograph was taken from just SE of the outflow. The hill in the background is Moel yr Hydd. The square contains mostly wet grassland on this side (E) of the stream, and steep moorland on the slopes of Moelwyn Mawr on the other. The western lakeside path crosses an abandoned mine.
