About Alwen Dam
The reservoir and dam were constructed between 1909 and 1921 to provide piped water to Birkenhead. Today the reservoir supplies water to homes across north-east Wales producing about 5 million gallons of water a day.
The Alwen reservoir is now encircled by the family friendly Alwen Trail - a new 7 mile / 15.5km way-marked route for walkers and cyclists to explore this beautiful area.
