Sunday 2nd May Mooch

I am having a mooch on the south side of Mount Snowdon to investigate a copper mine which lies just to the west of the Watkin path.

There is a walk of around 1 hour to reach the entrance to the mine (up hill obviously) and there are no guarantees of what might be found upon arrival.

There is a significant incline to the mine and I would expect it to be a reasonable adventure. Assuming the mine is accessible, I would also expect water to (probably) knee depth or higher at the entrance.

There are “levels” marked around that area on the map and, time permitting, a surface mooch (and underground explore where possible) is also on the cards.

Everyone/Anyone is welcome to come along for the walk and I intend to be at the gate at the beginning of the Watkin path at 10:00am on Sunday.

There is a pay&display car park very close by (just past Llyn Gwynant on the Beddgelert road)

If the weather is BAD I won’t be going (slight drizzle doesn’t constitute “bad”).

If you would like to come along, either just turn up or let me know in advance so I can be certain to wait/meet you.

Very Happy

Ian

First of all, I'd like to apologize to Mike for posting so late at night Wink lol!

Is it this one?
http://www.mine-explorer.co.uk/mines/Braich-yr-Oen_655/Braich-yr-Oen.asp

Looks interesting, especially as there doesn't seem to be any internal pictures listed On M-E. I can't make it to this one (again Sad ) But I'd be interested in learning what you find Ian.

You going on Tony's Rhoysdd trip on the Saturday Ian?

If anyone else from UCET, or anyone at all that reads this for that matter, want's to attend the Saturday M-E trip, Tony (speedycaver) has said that all are welcome. Link here: LINKY

It does look promising, I'm always on the lookout for new sites that are rarely covered or mentioned. Good luck with the trip bounce

The trip was a great success.

Beautiful day and leisurely stroll up the Watkin path.... decided to veer off to look at Hafod Y Porth Copper mine ....

Found numerous adits which were lubbly jubbly.

It will be added to the knoweldge bank in due course (with photos) and, of course, a mandatory video of people mindlessly walking hither and thither with some random annoying music.

affraid affraid affraid
