A return to Wrysgan is planned for this week to check on the state of the wormhole, and do any necessary work.

Optimists to bring SRT kit for a round trip Smile

Pessimists to bring handy foam and a crowbar Laugh

6.15pm at the Cwmorthin car park.

Yeah I'll go with digging tonight but will be there earlier than 6:15 because I am not able to stay as late as the rest of you.

Hope to see Margot and maybe other diggers later!

Sorry to hear that bud. You've even less of a life than me!

I'll get some pics of that gold plated signed keldrill prototype that we'll most probably find tonight, propped up against the steam loco parked at the top of the pristine four lane incline head. Only a couple of rocks between us and all that now.

Just spent 7 hours in Cwm so batteries and me exhausted! Good to see our Gaffer, Miles giving Margot a lift up the first incline up from the gate in his 4x4 as we were coming down. Then a bit further down, David coming up to the car park to lead his team around G-B's Hero Xtreme to see the new suspension bridge. Good, init...

So, hope everyone enjoyed it tonight. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the Keldrill and steam loco Wink

Yup Phil, sold my soul to Miles, part time trip assistant. Retirement pocket money doing something I enjoy and telling Joe Public about slate mining and all the industry it brought NW Wales.

Win - win Thumbs Up
