Spillway at Pontsticill Reservoir

macuser's picture

The spillway at Pontsticill Reservoir is well worth a visit but make sure you go when the water is actually draining. For this reason it's probably best to visit outside of the summer months and best to keep an eye on the weather forecast prior to going. Due to fencing, you are restricted to only a few viewpoints, I found the best was on top of the staircase to the left of the pier. The elevated viewpoint gave the best view down into the spillway. This location really lends itself to long exposures so remember those filters.
