Preserve Rhaslas Pond

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Residents in the South Wales Valleys are trying to preserve a feeder pond that joins the Merthyr River with the Darran river, known as Rhaslas it is more than just a pond it is huge, more like a lake. It is a speciality pond being only around 5 feet deep.
The area surrounding the pond is around 2000 acres of untouched marsh and scrubland used by around 50 different species of birds and ducks for nesting, this has been unspoiled for about 1000 years.
A petition is under way to ensure that no further development of the land around that area will be carried out.
Rhaslas is also an example of the Dowlais Free drainage system
and should be preserved as an historic feature in its current state for future education and enjoyment of the people of Wales and its future generations.
