The rock outcrops along the river create turbulent rapids, waterfalls and torrents that are very impressive in high water. These cascading falls have inspired generations of artists and writers. They are one of the wonders of Wales and are breathtakingly beautiful in all weathers.

The discovery of gold in Wales in the 19th century led to a gold rush. Cefn Coch was one of the richest mines in the Merionydd gold belt, an area known at the time as ‘New California’.
