Llangorse Lake in the Brecon Beacons National Park  

AGM 2016

The Annual General Meeting of the Trust is to be held on Thursday 17th November 2016 at The Bunch of Carrots, Hampton Bishop, Herefordshire at 7.30 pm.

After the formal business of the AGM has been concluded there will be a presentation by Richard Rees on “The London Dams that never came to Wales”. This proposal, in 1894, would have seen over 400 million gallons per day taken from the Wye and Usk and their headwaters and transferred to London by way of the Thames! The estimated cost at that time was £38 million with proposals to divert 43 streams into Llangorse Lake, raising the water level of the lake by 98 feet.

Following the presentation light refreshments will be served, and we would be most grateful if you could email us at info@rwpt to say  whether or not you will be able to attend.
