SH 938 766
Take the road just by Abergele which runs up the side of Gwrych Castle (by the gate house and I think it is Tan-y-goppa Road) and follow the road up and along the front of Gopa Wood. Halfway along (or perhaps a tad more) is a right turn (a track) which you can drive up. Go up there to the double bend and park. There is a footpath/track leading down hill (on the right of the road) towards a cliff face (hidden by trees) – the caves are in that face.
One Cave is gated the other(s) is not. The permission requirement is unknown.
Cave #1 ~ 50 feet
Cave #2 ~ unknown
Small & phreatic. Some formations but mostly damaged.
There are several caves here although two of them are insignificant and nothing more than just a grotto.
Of the other two, one is high on the cliff face and is, in any event, gated.
The ungated cave is also a little way up the cliff face (about 25 feet) but is easily reachable. Although this cave has two entrances, only one is really accessible. The entrance is little more than a hands & knees crawl and quickly brings you to a small chamber full of spiders. Passing this you come to another small chamber and then the passage turns left and becomes a crawl.
Just here there is evidence of substantial stalagmites/stalactites which have been broken away (seemingly a good number of years ago) to allow cavers to enter the passage beyond.
Just past this crawl area is a significant chamber of good size which is silted and has two apparent passages running off, both of which are 100% silted.
There is evidence of an abandoned dig here.
The two silted passages are unexplored as they require digging.
An (apparently) abandoned dig exists in the main chamber
