From Coed Poeth, drive down to the Nant Mill visitor centre and park on their car park. Take the footpath upstream on the RIGHT hand bank on the stream/river.
You will shortly come to a bridge crossing the river. The Orange Leete entrance is here on the right hand side of the river (you have been walking alongside the leete up till that point)
Open & Unknown
It is likely to flood to ceiling (see description below)
Presumably lead but with so much ochre, possibly copper and other minerals too.
This is apparently named “Orange Leete Level” by the Nant Mill visitor centre which is a stones throw away and is probably unimaginatively so named after the colour of the sediment in the waterflow as it is orange (ochre).
The entrance height is no more than 3 feet and the depth of the water was 1 foot (on the 26th Sept 2009 when I was there).
Looking inside, it did not appear to get any roomier although it could be that the water becomes deeper whilst the ceiling height remains the same.
Certainly, initially, you would have to crawl in on hands and knees and there is not much head space for air. I would expect this headspace to VANISH in wetter conditions.
I have no clue of it’s length or to where it goes expect that it is in close proximity to the mines of minera.
All of it is unexplored.
