The river Mellte near Ystradfellte forms part of ‘waterfall country’ on the southern parts of the Brecon Beacons national park. I’ve never spent much time around here as I’d rather head up into the hills or go climbing, but a particularly bleak Autumn day on Monday seemed like a good time to go check things out. I had seen some smaller waterfalls last week, but these are definitely more impressive. A couple weeks back there were some heavy rains and flooding. The high water line was clearly visible on the riverbank, would have been quite a sight to see the falls then. Hopefully I’ll get down here another time or two as the autumn color progresses.
