Nice and simple this week, a gentle visit to parc.
Bring SRT just in case but this is not a requirement!

Meet at Hafna carpark just here: https://zoom.earth/#view=53.124178,-3.823113,17z/layers=labels,crosshairs

For 1815.

See you there!

Went for a wander around the workings there earlier, can't believe how many adits and shafts there are, surely must be one of the biggest metal mines in the UK? Is there access to the upper levels? as those seem well barred off. IP: 82.132.247.190

Some yes, some no. Too much to describe and not all of it yet surveyed. It's huge!

My suspicion would be that there is a fair bit that's not been seen for a long time in Parc, but it involves either climbing or descending.

The current Levels 2 and 3 are relatively modern but the older levels exist between 2 and 3; and above 2. Below 3 is likely to be a bit damp...

Alas, also unlikely for me to be in attendance: The smaller teapot is coming for a sleepover and as I generally return her mildly dishevelled and slightly damaged, consider that Parc in all it's wondrous glory and it being a 'school night' might not be considered by the outside population as 'responsible parenting'. Confused
Anyway have a blast as I'm sure you will.
