I'm ordering a hi-res scan of the Drws-y-coed surveys, might be interesting to look at!

Their online viewer is rubbish.

Should be interesting. There have to be some areas still unexplored. IP: 147.143.12.215

Unfortunately all the lvel below road level are flooded. The smuddyn du mine further down the road was the deepest at 95 fathoms. The uncapped shaft is about 75ft deep and is the end of a nice little round trip but it has to be pre-rigged for srt. IP: 86.150.175.51

Smuddyn Du = Simdde Dylluan?
Or somewhere else?

If it is Simdde Dylluan, then it's at the northern end of Drws y Coed. The accessible bits are next to the drive with the cattle grid. There's an adit and a shaft. I naively thought we were the only ones to know that they joined up. Blush

i think smuddyn du, could be wrong. Its on the bend in the road by a row of old cottages further down the valley. An obviouse adit open on other side of river. Ninty fathom shaft on the left with huge bolder placed over entrace. IP: 86.150.175.51
