  • Rhaeadr y Cwm, one of Eryri’s most iconic waterfalls is threatened once again

    Cwm Cynfal is a place that has inspired storytellers, artists and poets over a millenium. It is one of Eryri’s most majestic waterfalls. But now it is being threatened once again by a hydro-electric scheme that would see the river dammed and as much as 70% of the water diverted around the waterfall.

    Three times already over the past thirty years plans have been submitted for a hydro-electric scheme in Cwm Cynfal. Three times they have been either refused or withdrawn.
