River Elwy

The River Elwy has its source south-east of Llanrwst. Its main tributary is the River Aled.

The Elwy is to some degree a spate river, and due to its catchment and overall topography tends to rise, and then fall and clear quickly.

River Clwyd

The River Clwyd rises in the Clocaenog Forest northwest of Corwen.


It flows due south and then north-eastwards, more or less tracking the A494 to Ruthin. Here it leaves a relatively narrow valley and enters a broad agricultural vale. Just south of 

Denbigh, it is joined by the River Clywedog.

Then the Clwyd meanders northwards through the fertile Clwyd valley to St Asaph, where it is joined by the River Elwy, its main tributary.

At the confluence of the Elwy and the Clwyd, the river becomes tidal before meeting the Irish Sea at Rhyl

River Aled

The Afon Aled flows from the moorland reservoirs of Llyn Aled and Llyn Aled Isaf. It is the main tributary of the River Elwy. Once the upper river frees itself from a deep gorge it is similar in topography to the Elwy.
