My first attempt to visit Penallta failed when, 18 months ago my car decided to bite the dust the night before. Luckily though I was not too late when I visited twice over the last week.

The first visit was just as the sun was coming up, my aim being to climb one of the headstocks. The upcast was chosen as, despite only having half the steps intact, it was furthest from security. Then, returning a few days later with sinnerman I was able to climb the other one, plus explore the winding/power house, fan house and try (without success) to get in the bath house.

An excellent site. Also, it appears everything is being kept, including both headstocks.

Nice work mate... Did you really do both stocks?? We only did the one!
You've got some catching up to do! Yes, did the upcast about a week earlier, just as the sun was coming up.
