Foxpath (Llwybrllwynog) Lead Mine (United Kingdom)

The Foxpath adit was driven to work the Nantglas lode West of Nantglas Mine, then a cross-cut extended West to communicate and drain the Pantmawr Mine workings by a rise into its Deep Adit.
The Foxpath Adit commences on top of an overgrown tip which is reached by following a path of some sort West of Nantglas Uchaf Adit. Unfortunately, a blockage prevents a round trip by abseiling down through the winze in Pantmawr Deep Adit.
Further North-West, in the forest near the footpath to Rheidol Falls Halt on the Vale of Rheidol Railway, a small unnamed trial adit lays above the path - following a small vein, with copper scratchings at the forebreast, for about 45 feet.
