Marchlyn Mawr reservoir is a high level lake in Snowdonia behind Elidir Fawr mountain. It is used as the high level water source for Dinorwig power station, a closed-loop pumped storage hydroelectric generating facility.

It is said that nearby lies the cave containing Arthur's treasure,[citation needed] a source of bedazzlement to the wanderer who sees it, and of disaster to the pilferer who touches it.
