Dolgarrog Disaster

Friday 17th May, 2019

Dolgarrog Disaster Walk

This walk starts on the edge of Dolgarrog, just 5 minutes from Trefriw (we’ll get there by our minibus). We will then visit Coedty reservoir, high above the village, before heading along the trackbed of the old tramway to remote Llyn Eigiau and its dam. It was the breaching of this dam which caused the disaster in 1925. On return, we will visit the memorial at Dolgarrog.

Please remember that it can be cold in the foothils of the Carneddau mountains, even in May, so make sure you’ve got warm, waterproof clothing, and good footwear.
