if anyone has been to clwyd alloys they may have noticed a water course running around the grounds then disappearing under the site.

anyhow i went to check it out after kevsy21 had previously been and reported on clywd alloys.

a bit of googling it turns out its a place called Pontybodkin strange place names as not long ago i found myself in oswaldtwistle lol nevermind.

anyway it was a rather nice mooch and with some old machinery being down there aswell it was quite a strange one as i think the water was used when the plant was operational for cooling or something.

a revisit is in order as i didnt get time to explore clywd alloys due to unforseen circumstances.

visited with kevsy21

there was quite a few ways in, and with the ground across the site showing signs of various collapse we chose the safest one this was actually the 2nd infall,(wasnt sure if this was supposed to look like this or it was a large collapse) the concrete pipe led us into a deep pit with bricklined walls and the opposite leading to a stoopy bricklined square (ill come back to that part later)

naturally kev went in first (theres no arguing with these ex coal miners lol)

a bit further down we was faced with another deep pit again i asked kev did he fancy going across first ,he agreed ,couldnt cross so we decided to get out and go look for the outfall....a ladder can be seen further down but its rusted to death and only goes halfway down

a bit of scrambling we came across the outfall

heading back out we went in search of the 1st infall

the 1st infall was a concrete affair leading to a concrete chamber then leading onto a bricklined chamber, it was a bit stoopy in here

eventually leading onto this bricklined one

exiting through a small gap (it looked like a door was attatched at one point kev mentioned (this part joined up with the pipe in the first pic on the report)
