This is to be hosted by Cambrian Mines Trust in association with Dr Peter Claughton as conference (lecture program) organiser. Peter has extensive experience in organising events and the trust is extremely grateful for his expertise.

Cave Access Ltd will be providing access to mines on land owned by the Welsh Government.

The theme of the conference will be “Mine exploration as a research tool - applications in mining history, geology and archaeology” and the event will take place over the weekend of Thursday 4th July until Monday 8th July inclusive.
Please note the 5 day event.

Venue: Llanafan, Ceredigion.

The venue is close to Cymystwyth and Frongoch, and a short distance only from most field trips. Longest is Talybont at 17 miles.

The ‘NAMHO Village’ comprises one of the biggest community halls in Ceredigion (Lisburne Hall) as the main hall for lectures, reception, and Saturday evening sit down dinner. Facilities include the main hall which holds up to 120 people, modern kitchen etc and 5 toilets, (2G 2L and disabled). Fully licensed of course.
The Church Hall is a short distance away and will be used for display stands. These will include the hosting trust, Cave Access Ltd, South and Mid Wales Cave Rescue, and some of the participating clubs. Its also has its own toilets. Display areas demonstrating the history and work of the trust and also of Cave Access Ltd

Parking; there are verges a plenty in the immediate vicinity plus parking on a small industrial estate about 50 yards away, Saturday and Sunday only.

Camping will be at the Maesyfelin Sports Complex which is just around the corner. The car park will be for caravans and motor homes and football field for tents. There is a permanent toilet block, a log cabin as informal meeting point, and a portable 4 person shower will be on site. There will be a Saturday Night barbecue as an alternative to the dinner centred on the ‘cabin’.

The object of this early announcement is to enable prospective delegates very ample forward planning. Unlike last time it is unlikely any trips will be cancelled and we are aiming to make this a record event.

Field trips will include much new ground in the popular mines and also some new locations.

Full details will be available after next years Royal Forest of Dean event.

Its basically same news handouts.
Any questions or queries, its ask Roy.

However, I would like to stress the importance of leaving this on the back burner until next years event is over.
Its next years RFD event to think about now, apart from filling in your 2019 diary dates.
