It is truly a magical place to visit and is an easy walk in places then becoming a bit steeper before reaching the viewing point. Access to it is beside the Fairy Glen Hotel following the path to the side of the hotel. Follow the path through fields for a 15 minute walk. There is an entrance fee to cover maintenance costs.
There are some steep steps to get to the Glen so just be careful in slippery conditions
At present the current location of the river provides a lovely wilderness for tourists to visit either as a fisherman, walker or photographer. If the proposed works were to go ahead then the water diversions would reduce the flow and also limit the activities for tourists.

The natural beauty of the current Glen would affect the picturesqueness of the area.
Here is an artists impression of the proposed design.
RWE Innogy have defended their proposal for the new £12m project saying it would produce 4.5mw of energy to power 3,000 or so houses ( Picture by RWE )
The river is also used by enthusiastic Canooeists and Kayakers but most leave the river further upstream to diembark.
How long have we got before plans are passed?
More than six thousand people put their names to this petition to have it dismissed..
800 letters have been sent to the Snowdonia National Park planning dept and hundreds more letters have been sent to Natural Resources Wales with objections to abstracting water.
We can only wait and see the results.
