Visited with Ian, Johno and Vicki
Slate mines, my speciality.
Much of the workings are inaccessible due to a collapse on the main haulage level, and it's quite wet for a slate mine. most of the working are on one level, but overall, quite a nice mine to explore over a few hours. The sounds in there are fantastic as the water flows down the main haulage tunnel and over rocks, quite like the noises you would find in an active cave. There are are numerous open chambers, quite overgrown, that give the mine a 'jungle' feel to it.
