Cafe closed due to refurbishment

Our Cafe will be closed from Monday 11th until Friday 15th of January to enable us to refurbish the area.

We will be serving soup, sandwiches, pasties and cold snacks, along with loose tea, instant coffee and cold drinks in the Exhibition Hall. Cash payments only.

The Gift Shop and Exhibition area will be open as usual.

Thank you in advance for your patience while we do this work. We look forward to seeing you in our newly refurbished Cafe on Saturday 16th January.

Dark Skies January Update

The sky chart shows the stars for mid January at around 8pm and we can finally start the new year with a planet in the evening sky, although it's not the easiest one to spot! Mercury will put in an appearance in the south west skies for the first week in January, but although bright, it will only be some 7° above the horizon at sunset. The rest of the bright planets are found in the morning skies and this is still where the action is.

Richard Higlett: Artist In Residence

As part of the developing APTELAN Artist In Residence Programme at the Elan Reservoir, I have had the opportunity to stay in a cottage near the Pen y Garreg Dam. Being located within the natural fabric of the valley, I was struck by how soon my understanding of time, and how I chose to spend it, changed.

Ever Wondered what the farmer has just said?

The following glossary provides some ins and outs of the strange words you can hear out and about on the Elan Valley Estate:

Let's begin with the birds and the bees; or rather more specifically the tups and the ewes. 

Dark Skies December Update

The sky chart shows the stars for 8pm in mid December. We are still short of planets in the evening skies, it will be another couple of months before they start to make an appearance. So it is to the morning skies we must look for targets.

Dark Skies November Update

The all-sky chart shows the night sky for mid November at around 10pm. One of the most prominent winter star groups, or constellation to use the correct name, is becoming visible in the south east sky now.

Dark Skies October Update

The attached sky chart shows the sky at around 10pm BST mid-October.  In terms of planets, the evening sky is thin on the ground with only the faint and hard to find outer planets on show. For the early risers amongst us though, the morning skies offer much better viewing.
