Location
SJ 204 595

Directions
Just before you arrive at Burley Hill quarry (a hundred yards or less before) the adit can be seen on the left at the side of the road. (Approaching from the Pant Du side)

Access
Ungated & open. Permission unknown.

Suggested Equipment
None

Length
Unknown

Flood risk
None known.

Mine Attributes
Unknown

Description
The entrance to this adit is almost blocked with only a small aperture which is currently just too small to get through. Access will require a small dig.

Nothing is known except that other mines in the area were lead mines and it is assumed that this is also a lead mine or trial adit.

It is in very close proximity to Belgrave mine.

Unexplored Passages
None of this adit/mine has been explored.

Digs
None known.

This is taken by pushing the camera through the entrance and taking a picture of the inside

Hello there.

I think the adit you're referring to is part of the Pentrehobin Vein (also known as Garreg yr cochion) which is a off shoot of the Pand Ddu vein, and has been worked to about 110m.
Failing that it could well be Taylors Vein, which has a few trail shafts and apparently blocked after 40 / 50 meters where it meets a filled shaft.

Hope that's of some use.
