Bwlch Y Rhiw Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


Up the hill from the very isolated chapel are two trial levels, one either side of the very picturesque stream. The western trial is fenced off and thigh deep in chilling water. It meanders through the rock past a wet stope, taking a turn and ending in a clean dig face.
The Eastern trial is about 1m long and just down from the spoil heap.
