Here’s a few images/warnings issued over the years that still stand for some sites. These images have dropped down to the bottom of the news feed on the site so I thought I’d add them again and stick them to the top of the updates feed.
Here’s a photo of the brow taken after the cracks were originally painted, this image can be used to compare any changes

Apologies if you’ve just had your facebook news feed bombarded with posts from the mines website. I’ve just done a little tidying up so it should be easier for people to find information about specific mines quickly (there’s a drop down menu on the right hand side side bar).
If you’re aware of any changes to the access for the mines please let me know so I can keep these pages current.
No known access issues. Let us know if you have any problems.
No known access issues with the mines within the gorge. Access to the Klondike level/workings have been gated for some time now.
Please do not enter the first mine on the right (as you’re heading up the gorge) as it releases a significant amount of ochre into the stream
Access to Henddol is managed by Pro Active. Contact Clive for further information.
With the closure of Tyn y Berth access to Gaewern and the upkeep of the anchors and fixed rigging (cables) is currently up in the air.
There are no known access issues with Fish Caves. If you encounter any issues please let us know.
Some of the anchors within the mine were tested and replaced recently with an updated rigging guide. Further information is available here: http://www.train4underground.co.uk/2017/01/23/fish-caves-lead-mine-anchors/
