A fabulous free-to-take-part mix of scenic coastal driving and heavy engineering as the group heads to mid Wales - 22 & Sun 23rd of August 2020.
Base camp and start of the drive will be Brynowen holiday park near Aberystwyth. From here we take the scenic coastal route on the A465 to the Internal Fire museum of power, just outside of Cardigan at Tany Y Groes , featuring huge diesel and steam engines from the industrial and maritime past.
From the museum we will head inland passing through remote villages and towns such as Newcastle Emlyn as we meander north back towards our second stop of the day at Rheidol hydro electric power station, set in stunning scenery the group will be allowed to park up and explore the reservoir and dam itself before going inside on a pre arranged tour of the inner workings of the power station including the huge water turbines, hot and cold refreshments are available at the visitor centre.
Sunday's part 2 will involve a gentle 7 mile drive to the Vale of Rheidol steam railway, a fantastic 12 mile narrow gauge railway winding it's way up and around impressive terrain before arriving at Devils Bridge Waterfalls, for those that don't wish to use the steam railway an alternative driving route will be provided and you can meet the train and those riding it at Devils Bridge for some excellent photo opportunities.
