Not exactly the lightest item to be lugging around. Maybe it was a macho marines exercise like putting a piano on Ben Nevis.

It looks as good a place as any to hide a boat.

On a slight tangent, there are always a few boats kicking around in Nenthead village a good 40 miles away from the sea.

I am wondering if it was intended to dam the entrance and make a fun boat trip, this is the most plausible explanation.

Or maybe its owner thinks its as good a place as any to store it.

Be advised though, it has a few holes so basically scrap/repair territory. So on the basis of this it may just have been dumped out of the way.

Hmm, it does look similar to the boats that used to be used in Speedwell.

Ref the Upper level has a boat! (photo)

This is in Aberdovey Penhelig mines, it’s believed that these mines might be linked to the Aberdovey Balkan Hill mines.

The two levels that are open in the Penhelig mines are both linked to each other but go to a dead end. However, there is a third level that can be seen as a collapsed entrance on the hillside above this tunnel. What’s intriguing is that there might be a link in the roof of the small craven to the upper levels at the end of the tunnel that’s photographed here.

Hope this helps,
