This week's trip takes us to a mine with a view - Cwm Ceunant copper mine overlooking Nant Ffrancon. Thumb Up

If you want to see as much as possible, bring SRT kit as the mine is on three levels. Or just come with a camera (and insect repellant) and enjoy what should be a lovely evening. Thumbs Up

Meet here around 6:15pm:

Great fun last night chaps, thanks!

Regarding my thoughts on my last visit, and what time of year it was, apparently it was December 2012 and it was raining heavily.

I suppose that's why the lower adit was "relatively" dry last night. Laugh

Regarding the photo below....happy days but WOW they don't half grow up quickly..... Sad
