Location
SH 581 741

Directions
On crossing the Menai suspension bridge onto Anglesey (not the Britannia bridge), take the A545 to Beaumaris. There is a hotel/pub on the left after around a mile (possibly called the Antelope, I have forgotten) – park in a layby at the front of this pub/hotel (it is marked on the O/S map).
There is a public footpath (marked) which takes you down to the beach – go to the beach and continue heading towards Beaumaris – you will see the adit in the cliff face on your left (it is very obvious).

Access
All ungated, no known permissions required

Suggested Equipment
None

Length
200 feet

Flood Risk
It is just above tide level and could easily flood at high tide but it appears not to.

Mine Attributes
Unknown

Description
A slightly more than completely uninteresting (trial) adit.
The passage twists slightly and pretends to fork although the fork is very short in one direction.
Other than some rubbish scattered around, the adit is featureless and there are no mineral intrusions to suggest what the miners may have been looking for.
Marks out of 100 would be 1/100.

Unexplored Passages
None

Digs
None

Links
None Known
