Newbie here.
Does anyone know if the entrance to what’s left of Diffwys is still open?

I had a wander around the waste tips below Maenofferen and had a look down the Votty adit (wet).

A potential hole for Diffwys (approx 52.999345,-3.915948) led to a few featureless caverns, but not the ones pictured on here.
