Pen-y-gareg dam is the second dam up in the Elan Valley, Rhayader, Wales. There are four dams on the river Elan, which supply water to Birmingham. There was fresh snow the morning I arrived, making the area look absolutely beautiful. This dam is usually overflowing. The higher dam, Craig Goch, is often not overflowing so it's worth checking the Elan Valley facebook page before you head out. The river Claerwen has the newest, and largest Claerwen dam, it makes for a dramatic photograph when shot from the small footbridge below.
