Pistyll Rhaeadr is the largest waterfall in Wales, with a drop of 240 feet. The name translates to Spring of the Waterfall. The small natural bridge is about 2/3 of the way down the falls. The span is only about 8 feet or so. The falls are close to the quaint Welsh village of Llanrhaeadr which lies 10 miles from the English border near to the town of Oswestry. To reach the falls follow the signs from the centre of the village along a single track road and up a glacial valley for 4 miles. The road ends at a small cafe at the base of the falls. Photo taken in November. It is best photographed in the spring when there is more water in the falls and the sun is higher in the sky. Photo by Ray Millar.
