Bit of a long shot this but does anyone have a contact for Griff R Jones who wrote the book on Rhiwbach?

Or has anyone a legible version of page 193 of his book with the annotated plan?

I'm trying to re-draw the plan of the mine as accurately as possible, but even on the original abandonment plan we have (it's the same one on the CAL website) there's a few annotations that I can't make out.

Cheers,
Gethin

Regrettably Griff died a number of years ago. I may have a paper copy of the plan, I'll look for it tomorrow.

Regards

Jon

Cheers Jon, dont suppose you could send a photo? I've a pretty good idea of the layout, I'm just trying to annotate the plan I have with some of the historic information. There's various sinks and numbering etc I just can't make out on any of the plans I have IP: 78.148.93.10 Edited: 03/11/2019 13:25:32 by Detrus
