Llyn Llydaw and Glaslyn - Snowdonia
At 1,430 ft above sea level Llyn Llydaw is a sterile glacial lake of Snowdon in its eastern valley Cwm Dyli. It has an industrial air about it, and it has the Miners’ track crossing its eastern end by a causeway that was built in 1853 when the lake was lowered. Covering an area of 110 acres, it has a depth of approximately 190 ft at the head of the lake, but becomes shallower due to the morainic deposits by the ancient Llydaw glacier.
