Electric Mountain Dinorwig hydroelectric power station from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Electric Mountain Dinorwig hydroelectric power station Gwynedd North Wales. The Power Station is a pumped storage system designed to cover short periods of high demand. Built in 1974 - 1984 the system uses water flowing from Marchlyn Mawr reservoir at the top of Elidir Fawr through underground tunnels and generating equipment to Llyn Peris at the bottom of the mountain. Once the high demand has passed, the water is pumped back up again.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. There is a search facility ( bottom left )but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
