REPORT

Cambrian Slate Mine, Glyn Ceiriog

14th May 2011 - Thomas Howard

There is an  view album related to this report album     related to this event

A nice easy trip into Cambrian Slate Mine was organised by Ed this weekend where a good turnout was seen. Although said to be a bone dry mine Tom and Ed managed to find waist deep water and almost everybody found there feet wet. Ed found a dig at a collapse at the very end, turning his overalls from orange to grey whilst Pete C tried his new camera out. An interesting trip had by all and then a quick picture share was had down at the pub (forgetting the name). Thanks everybody.

Nigel adds: We revisited the mine on 25th June and tried to see as much as possible following the old plans. Unfortunately, a quarter is flooded and about half is beyond the blockage that Ed was digging. However, we managed to get a few half-decent photos which are shown below and in the album.
