River levels

Rain Chasers river levels
EA river levels. Less than 1m is a bit of a scrape and 1.5 is high.

There is a pipe on a footbridge near Llanwrtyd Wells and the river can be run from anywhere 1.5 m below this pipe. If the water is level with the pipe the water is very high. The pipes can be found at GR 867473.

You can also get a idea of what the river levels are like at a washpool above LLanwytyd Wells GR 859499. If the water is flowing over a pipe the water levels are high.
