    Default Alaw, Llyn

    Llyn Alaw is a man-made reservoir on Anglesey, North, Wales. It is used to supply drinking water to the northern half of the island.

    The catchment is largely agricultural and few notable rivers feed into the lake. The storage capacity is largely generated through trapping winter rainfall and drawing down the level in the summer months. The reservoir itself is 4.3 kilometres long with a surface area of 3.6 kmē making it the largest body of water on the island.

    Recent developments have included the provision of nature conservation facilities and way-marked walks around the margin

    You can find some pictures on Geograph website and details of recreation on Welsh Water reservoirs here.

    Unfortunately there is no canoeing at Llyn Alaw.

    Welsh Water seem to have a very odd approach to access for canoeing.
