Lock at Llandegfedd Reservoir to be changed
The lock on the Inlet Gate at the north end of the reservoir will be changed at the end of this month rendering all current keys held by birdwatchers useless.  As access will be restricted to permit holders during the winter months (1 November to the end of February), those who wish to bird the reservoir then should take their current key and permit to the new Visitor Centre to get a FREE replacement key.  Keys will be available after 23 October.
Keyholder access to the north end will be limited to the period when rangers are present - 8am to 4pm.  A second lock (for which we do not have the key) will be attached to the gate from 4pm to 8am.
Permits can be bought at the new Visitor Centre close to the east end of the dam (ST328986).  The Centre is currently open from 8am to 6.15pm but closes earlier as the nights draw in.  Phone 01633 373404 for the latest opening times.
