Thanks to @Kwan for being a total pro and getting us all in and out in one piece.

This trip was harder than it should of been thanks to weather and fallen trees, but it was still a great trip. So @The Kwan, @Lavino @GK_WAX, @Lenston, @Trancentral (and myself ventured down that air vent into the mine. It was my first mine and I have to say I loved it. Getting out was a lot harder than getting in and it wasnt made easier by the rain. We also dressed as Santa which got a few honks from drivers passing by.

Due to time restraints and a flooded passage we didnt get to see the "Bridge of Death," but theres always next time.
This report isnt very picture heavy either, my 10 year old camera struggled to take photos in the dark, so it was a point and click and hope I got something.

This quarry lies at the end of the valley Moel Fferna. The mine opened in the 1870s and was worked almost entirely underground and eventually working on seven levels. Its developed a reputation for good slab and efficient working. Until a mill was built in 1911 slab was taken to the Nant y Pandy mill. The mill that was constructed used a gas engine to power sand saws. In 1923 an oil engined electric generator enabled the mill to used diamond saws. The mine closed in 1960.
