Digital Pictures IndexLake Vyrnwy (Llyn Efyrnwy)

Thursday 21st July 00  Hot and sunny

Completed in 1888, the Lake Vyrnwy reservoir was built to supply water to the rapidly growing city of Liverpool and its dam was the largest in Europe at the time.  The first water flowed to Liverpool on the 14th of July 1892.
