Maenofferen 1975

I first visited MaenOfferen on a snowy day at Easter 1975. I started by walking up through Votty, then up to Maenofferen, across to Llechwedd, finally ending up at Gloddfa Ganol. These are the Maenofferen shots. The quality is a bit variable! I've added a few in the mill from the summer of 1975 when I was taken up there by an Ex-Votty miner.
