Maenofferen isn't somewhere you want to go if your familiar with slate mines. I've never been despite going to Blaenau 20 odd times - The closest I got was a walk up to the quarry bit where the big dump trucks are.

Make sure you have a tripod with you though to get some decent pictures.

Why isn't it somewhere you would want to visit?

The place is miles and miles of chambers and tunnels which look very similar. The first mine I did solo was Rhosydd on the other side of town which is tiny by comparison and it still took me 3 visits to find one of the inclines, it is however, a fairly easy mine to navigate.

Just to put it in perspective Oakeley across town which was once the largest underground slate mine in the world had over 50 miles of underground tramway.

Brilliant. It's just beautiful. Added to my to-do list next time I'm back in the area.

I'm not far from you, next time I go I'll drop you a message if you want a look.
I've you've opened up your borders I'll pop along too. There are still some bits in there I would like to see.
