    Default The Croesor to Rhosydd Slate Mine through trip (nr.Tremadoc, Nth.Wales)


    Although well documented previously in this forum, (https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/mai...?searchid=5273)
    these are from a through trip just a week ago. The last entry in the forum is from about 2.5 years ago and it's interesting to see the deterioration of the 'turntable' in that time. (if anyone is contemplating the through trip, most 'aids' are in good nick except for a serious frayed bit on the first in-situ abseil rope, about 2.5m off the floor. You can't get off the rope unless you swing sideways on to a slope, to get your weight off the rope)

    Slatey goodness - gives me a few ideas for up this way...

    I'm aware that up in the North Pennines a few mines are starting to crumble dramatically. Even what was always considered stable touristy stuff is seeing some nasty big collapses - in one instance a huge boulder dropped into a stone lined ore chute and took everything down with it.

    I've actually never been to Wales and slate mines there. I don't do climbing now so it's a no go unless surface stuff (and I can drive a car there!).
    Full of meaty goodness.
