24 December 2006: KEEPER'S COTTAGE BURNS DOWN.
The house on the reservoir embankment known as Keeper's Cottage, close to the Rhyd-y-Penau road entrance, burned down on the night of Christmas Eve in mysterious circumstances. The blaze was spotted around 3 am but unfortunately the emergency services had difficulty reaching the site, because of the locked bollards in the access lane. By the time the fire was put out, the house had been gutted. Coincidently, it is almost exactly two years since the adjacent building, which was the Headquarters of the Cardiff Reservoirs Fly Fishing Club, also burned down as a result of arson.
