There's a snippet in here https://www.nmrs.org.uk/assets/lookinside/op5lookinside.pdf which kind of implies you won't find much.

Somewhere in this area: https://goo.gl/maps/h8EUKXs8fTbq1rfY6

Now then, its a small world. My managing Director owns all the land around there and would be happy to point me in the right direction. However he has just left for 3 weeks in the US. If you're still in the dark by then I will chase it up on his return. Keen to have a poke around there myself if there anything to be found. Thumb Up

The starting point is to get to the old gate on Ffordd Isallt at SH90777659. (There's room for a car to park close by.)

Then, if I remember correctly ... go through the gate and head uphill until you reach the base of a cliff. Continue uphill along the base of the cliff until you see (if the undergrowth isn't too high) the tip off to your right. Once you get to the tip the entrance is obvious at the base of the outcrop.



(click image to open full size image in new window)

There have been some changes since 1961 when the photo was taken. (I'm a lot older for a start.) There was a gate on the entrance which was not locked when I revisited the place in 2011.

Hope this helps.
