    Props to Georgie for the info on this place, Visited with Telf, MSP and Ellis. I was really pleased to find that this place was quite vast inside although not much in the way of artifacts or machinery to speak of.

    Chwarel Wynne slate mine was worked up until 1928 and then sat dormant for many years then in 1978, the Wynne Quarry site was bought with a view to opening the quarry site and grounds to the public as a tourist attraction, along the lines of the successful ventures elsewhere in North Wales. The work involved was considerable.The Underground Workings had to be inspected, the most suitable for the public decided upon and made safe. Lighting had to be installed, pathways and secure steps constructed, the approval of the Department of Health and Safety obtained and a thousand and one other things done before “The Lost Caverns of Chwarel Wynne” opened to the public for the first time. It appears that the Mine closed its doors to the public around 1996.

    tourist attraction

    and a floorplan as it was in 1984

    Outside the mine entrance there is an old museum, whats under the Tarp?

    And a gift shop

    inside the tourist entrance is a small display and then a staircase down to the workings

    Below ground it is quite surreal to see some of the maniquinns still in place but the worse for years of wear
    a bit disturbing this one
    reminiscent of the Oakley show mine

    We saw tools of the trade being brandished by everyday Tools :)

    In case of emergency...this way

    The oldest Dawg an Bone

    We saw a bit of a lake underground, lit with Telfs homemade deathray


    and a last one

    Outside there appeared to be a collection of old scimitars amongst other stuff

    thanks for looking
