Llyn Celyn is a large reservoir constructed in 1961 in the valley of the River Tryweryn in North Wales. Construction of the reservoir involved flooding the village of Capel Celyn and adjacent farmland, which caused considerable outrage in Wales and is still remembered with anger. In all some 16 farms, totalling 770 acres, were affected by the scheme. Much of the anger was occasioned because the village was a strong-hold of Welsh culture and the Welsh language, whilst the reservoir was being built to supply Liverpool with water with no benefit to Wales.
