Llyn Brianne: Was it prettier as a valley?
Locals complain that the dam and reservoir although beautiful in their own right, can in no way be compared to the beauty of the valley and gorge that the dam and reservoir has replaced.
Proposals to deliver electricity generated at the dam to the National Grid via a line of pylons down the Towi Valley fortunately caused such a storm of protest that after a sustained campaign the cable was buried out of sight. It lies mainly in a trench cut in and beside the Rhandirmwyn to Llandovery Road.
