PostSubject: Cyffty Mine   Fri 03 Jul 2009, 12:37 pm

Location
SH 772 588

Directions
Take the main road through Betws Y Coed, past the Swallow Falls and take the track off to the right near the Ugly house. Follow the road up hill, past the right turn but stop on the next corner as the mine is there.

You will see a house, a fenced area saying “danger mine” on the opposite side of the road to the house and the surface workings of the mine on the other side.

Access
Sealed off but the surface is preserved.

Suggested Equipment
None

Length
Unknown

Flood risk
Unknown

Mine Attributes
Lead and Dunasite

Description
The ruins of the main surface working are preserved as an attraction to passing walkers with information boards strategically situated. There appear to be at least two shafts (sealed) and one horizontal adit (backfilled?) – this adit is in the small fenced area marked “danger mine”

The information board suggests the mine was operational on several levels.

Although the entrances are sealed, it is thought that it is possible to access the mine through Parc mine.

Unexplored Passages
Nothing has been explored

Digs
None Known
