About this spot
Llyn Celyn has a dark past. Once it was home to the village of Capel Celyn but the land was sold off in the 1960s and the valley was flooded in order to create Llyn Celyn or Tryweryn reservoir to provide water to the English city of Liverpool. Despite overwhelming opposition within Wales, the UK government proceeded with damming and flooding the village, displacing its residents. "Cofiwch Dryweryn" (in English: "Remember Tryweryn") remains a motto of the Welsh independence movement.
