The Dam at Lake Vyrnwy was started in 1881 and completed seven years later in 1888. It was the first large stone-built dam in the United Kingdom, and is built partly out of great blocks of Welsh slate. When built it cost 620,000, which today is around 22,000,000. The dam is 44 m (144 ft) high from the bottom of the valley, and 39 m (127 ft) thick at the base. The dam's length is 357 m (1172 ft), and has a road bridge running along the top. It is decorated with over 25 arches and two small towers (each with four corner turrets) that rise 4 m/13 ft above the road surface.

Lovely reflection but the trees in the background are a bit washed out.
You missed off the bit of the history about the welsh village being destroyed (now sitting under the middle of the lake) in order to provide water for the english in Birmingham.
