Following a rare pick up from Kington this morning, we head to Rhayader to explore and have lunch. After lunch, we head to the Elan Valley to meet our guide.
Elan Valley is 72 square miles of stunning scenery, spectacular dams and a rich legacy of Victorian architecture and engineering.
A Ranger tour of the estate has been arranged for the afternoon. Our Ranger will explain about the history, the building of the dams and the lives of the 50,000 labours who worked on the scheme.
Also as part of our tour, we have exclusive access INSIDE Pen Y Garreg Dam. This dam has an internal gallery and offers a new perspective on the work that was involved to build these dams. We can even venture up to the central tower which is now a unique wedding venue.
XXX Not many steps, but some uneven ground XXX
Before we head home, there will be time for the Visitor Centre, shop and café.
