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/
Please see the mine reports for the most recent access arrangements for Cwmorthin, or contact Go Below.
There is currently no access to Aberllefenni as the mine has recently changed hands. Groups should not use this mine unless the access arrangements change.
Can groups please park in the new parking area (paid for by the users of the inspection scheme) which is a little further down the road (South) from the barn which groups have traditionally parked next to (Grid ref: SH 62454 41212). Please make sure the road is left clear if you want to keep your wing mirrors!
Groups should access the mine by walking back along the road towards the farm, then through the gate (also paid for by the users group), if accessing the lower levels.
