Pistyll Rhaeadr, Wales

Flickr JRT's picture

Pistyll Rhaeadr is an enchanting waterfall in the Berwyn Mountains, just inside Wales, west of Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

At 240ft (80m) high it is the UK tallest single drop waterfall. This much-loved waterfall captivates all who visit her.

There is also a wonderful little cafe to eat and drink after your shoot. It is also well worth a walk to the top of the waterfall.

I could be mistaken, but I seem to recall that there was a charge for parking but not admission. And there's plenty of roadside parking nearby, as this is a good access point to the Berwyn Mountains, not solely the waterfall.

Despite the landowner's claims, it's not remotely the UK's tallest waterfall, by any of the standard definitions, but it's still impressive!
