The first tour in April was of the Elan valley and took place in beautiful weather. With the assistance of the Elan Valley ranger service, the tour proved very successful.
Here are some quotes about the last tour:
“Excellent day tour of fascinating area. Getting inside a dam was a highlight of an action packed day. The whole area is filled with interest and so scenic. That mid Wales region has much to offer. The train lines used to build the six dams are another fascinating aspect of the tour. We were blessed with terrific weather and even water cascading over one of the dams, so it made it especially memorable.”
