I’ve just spent the day at Aber Falls, probably one of the most impressive in North Wales. Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr in Welsh) is a waterfall located about two miles (3 km) south of the village of Abergwyngregyn, Gwynedd, Wales.
The waterfall is formed as the Afon Goch plunges about 120 feet (37 m) over a sill of igneous rock in the foothills of the Carneddau range. Two tributaries merge; the enlarged stream is known as Afon Rhaeadr Fawr; from the road bridge, Bont Newydd, the name becomes Afon Aber.
Taken further downstream from the falls this image is just a taster of the post I will be putting together with plenty of photographs to show the falls and the surrounding countryside which is quite spectacular.
