Glascoed Quarry. 03/6/10

Visited with : Vwdirtboy
History : There is very little in the way of information on the net about these mines. So this is part of what
I have been informed by locals.
The quary was first started by the local monks (thats another story) as an open cast in the escarpment of Silurian
Lime stone this was then dug in to the cliff face and extended horizontally leaving pillars to support the ceiling.


The lime stone around these enterances are very unstable.




This is a old well which has been filled with stones now but has a nice fresh water level on the top 2 foot.




Some startings of flowstone.
