Hi all.
Working in the caravan industry can mean long hours and sometimes even moving to other parts of the country. Having familiarise myself with predominantly slate and some mineral mines in and around Snowdonia I moved to the north east and was lucky enough to do a couple of mines and natural caves in and around Stanhope, Weardale Valley. Now I'm back home here in North Wales and just bought a hose in Mochdre..... I'm looking for suggestions of places worth exploring in and around Mochdre (done the limestone mine). All recommendations and offer to tag along on any evening jaunts much appreciated.Thumbs Up
