SH 123 549
At Pwll Glas (heading towards Ruthin), locate the phone box by the roadside and continue towards Ruthin for a very short distance until you see a road/public footpath on the right (heading into Eyarth house Woods). This quickly takes you across a stream/river and you need to follow the track along the riverside (having gone over the bridge) towards Ruthin as quickly as possible (the track descends downwards). The adit is at the bottom of this track, by the riverside, on the right.
Adit ungated, permission requirement is unknown
300 feet max
It is not known what was mined here. Superbly decorated with calcite features, pure white floor, wall and ceiling decorations and superb cave pearls.
Probably a trial adit rather than a mine or if it was an actual mine then the vein was somewhat limited.
The entrance to the adit is typical of any lead mine and featureless. However, as you progress, the water has brought a fantastic amount of mineral (mainly calcium) through the limestone rock which has been unmolested.
The whiteness and formation of the decorations are spectacular.
No connecting passages or shafts although there is another adit (quickly blind) on the other side of the stream/river.
Additionally, there is evidence of significant workings within a stones throw which include ruined buildings (perhaps connected with mining) and a huge amount of spoil which could not possibly have come from this adit. A mooch around revealed no other entrances and nothing is apparent on the O/S map.
There is potential for at least one other unfound adit/mine
