I feel very lucky to have been able to experience this astonishing mine, not once but twice. It was a very challenging visit, with entry and exit being via a rather daunting descent and ascent of around 400 ft, using a series of fixed ladders within the main mine Shaft.
It’s an awesome place in both the scale of its Cathedral like chambers and the amount and distance of it’s tunnels and chambers. The history of Olwyn Goch & Milwr Tunnel is fascinating too, being a Time Capsule, where on the day the mine finally closed, the miners simply left their tools and loco’s, just where they were working.
