This week we're heading into Cwmorthin slate mine for a pick & mix of activities. One group will need harnesses and cowstails while there might be a second group on foot, taking photographs and exploring.
Everyone welcome. Thumbs Up

Meet at the Cwmorthin car park around 6:15pm.

Hahaha Dave Wyche, I forgot about him! Now there was a guy who DID have style!! Metallic Brown 1979 Opel Monza 3.0E with air-con, an 8-track player, green tinted glass, gold alloys and a beige vinyl roof! Registration number: SKA 8T. That car had been "pimped" before the word was even invented Laugh

Got to finish converting my 3ph heater into 1ph in the morning then will head up just after lunch.

Will see the cream of the AN crop in the LW, the rest of you softies will no doubt be sniffling around the back vein somewhere...

Was nice to put some more faces to names Thumbs Up

Also very interesting to see the L.W for the first time but that place is certainly not for me. Hats off to you guys for working so hard at it.
