    when i first seen pictures of this mine it definetly drew me into mine exploring ,a not only derelict mine but one that was opened as a leisure site to the public....win!

    anyway me, sallybear,gibbo,tcci,and darwen dave,had a trip planned to the cambrian just a stones throw away from this place and we visited this also seeing as we was in the area.

    this mine and the whole grounds are owned by a lady who still lives onsite and couldnt keep the mine open to the public once her husband sadly passed away,and access to this place is somewhat a game of chance as we were lucky,and also lucky enough to bump into the mine owner on our exit while she was out walking her dog and peacocks and very kindly chatted to us,she said she doesnt let anyone down in the mine over health and safety issues,fair play to her i suppose.

    other bits of history/info....
