Aber Falls – A Taster


I’ve just spent the day at Aber Falls, probably one of the most impressive in North WalesAber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr in Welsh) is a waterfall located about two miles (3 km) south of the village of AbergwyngregynGwynedd, 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.

  1. Hi Mike

    Well the recent rain has done you a favour in providing plenty of water for this waterfall. I went there about 25 years ago and never been since. Funny how living here makes one take it all for granted. Nice work again Mike. I seem to have a lot more time on my hands now as work has dried up. Perhaps I will make the trip here myself and see if I can get a bit of inspiration.

    • Hi Steve…I’ve got visitors at the moment so I can’t spend enough time on this or anything else at the moment. I’m putting together a blog about this one with details of parking, how to get there etc.. Hopefully I should have it ready some time over the weekend. I wouldn’t mind another trip there. I took loads of photographs but still think I could do some better. I’ve got some great ones of the falls but I didn’t include any reference for people to see how high they really are, Still, they’re not that far away and the hike to them is not that bad….
