Nice little wander into Cwt y Bugail this week. Thumbs Up

There is a handline that will need replacing so I'll be taking drill, bolts, hangers, rope etc. No real SRT required but there are a couple of other bits that we need to check out while we are there so I'll be packing everything just in case.
Other than that if you've never been then do come along; its a lovely mine. Oh, and it has a very spooky haunted adit if anyone feels brave..... Devil

Meet here:

...at 6.15.

If the weather forecast is horrific then I have a backup plan involving a shorter walk Wink

Great trip last night guys. And the finest banana cake courtesy of Mrs Freddo Thumbs Up

I thought that the last time I had been there was 2011:




...but it appears that I was there in 2013:



Don't remember being there; total blank. Not sure why I was so fascinated with those chains either.... Blink ....just told to stand and pose probably Laugh Laugh
