Cedryn slate mine?

Or rather: Caerhun or Cwm Eigiau slate mines. Closer to the crag!

I think the old tramway to Cwm Eigiau slate mine is good enough for a Landrover. IP: 147.143.13.7

Depends who's driving it.

If you *really* want to get it there, put Jagman in it and tell him it cannot be done. It might not be forecourt-fresh afterwards though...
