Moel Fferna is a fantastic place, did you get to explore all 7 levels ?
Always good to have the radox ready after doing this place,,,
Imagine how the miners who worked the mine felt after walking up to the mine from the village putting a full shift in then walking back down 6 days a week......

I just showed them the most interesting bits and I've still not taken the time to do a decent photo shot down there myself yet.

I was just thinking that looking at that PDF. That's the very definition of Hard Graft.

EWJ. I am up for a photo-orientated session when you fancy going back there. I'll talk to you tomorrow (hopefully) about when I have time off work.
