Nedd Fechan: Pont Melin-Fach to Pontneddfechan

Grade 4/5
Length 3 km
Current Level low @0.61 1 hour ago
Volume 10-25 cumecs

in Brecon Beacons · South Wales


A classic waterfall run. Two of the major drops are often portaged. The first is runnable with care (shallow landing), the second looks filthy - good luck! The rest of the run is excellent grade 4 before mellowing in the last km to easier water.

Water Levels

Note that the gauge for this run is shared with the Mellte, which stays up longer than the Nedd Fechan. Therefore when the river is on the rise, the calibrations should be accurate. If it is dropping, you might be left high and dry.
