    cant find much info out on this place other than this

    the cambrian is situated in the hills of ceiriog
    consisted of 4 large open workings,and a considerable amount of underground workings

    im sure i read somewhere that this place exploded due to some form of gas yrs ago

    anyhow my first mine explore and quite a challenge taking pics this far underground...

    was quite an experience and could do with a revisit to spend more time in there and also to get better pictures than what i ended up with.

    after the rather wet access your faced with a large carved tunnel leading to a y junction with the left leading you deep into the mine as the right tunnel takes to land....sadly i didnt manage to get any pics of the main tunnel or y junction as the torrent of water was quite fierce ,well over the knee ,and my tripod was getting thrown everywhere.

    gibbo said there was a large waterfall inside but sadly i never got to see it ...there was allsorts ,a dam,big rivers,old workings,...probably the kind of things youd expect to find in an old mine i suppose

    found this little pdf which explains it a bit more http://www.mine-explorer.co.uk/mines/Cambrian_106/Cambrian_19072.pdf

    visited with gibbo,tcci,darwen dave,and sallybear
