This location is the site of some old mine and quarry workings that have long since become overgrown. They provide a fantastic view over the Usk valley, primarily overlooking the village of Crickhowell and the town of Abergavenny to the south.

I believe the area around this reservoir offers some of the best views of Pen-y-fan, the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons. Admittedly it is a bit of a hike from the nearest car park some 2 miles to the south but the walking is easy, most of it on tarmac roads.
