Bwlch y Plwm after dark
Our reason for exploring was that we have lately developed a taste for night-time mining, I know it's all the same underground, but the mines are usually free of other explorers at night (unless it's a Thursday night*) and it's deliciously eerie approaching them in the dark. Bwlch-y-Plwm is quite near to home and we can find it easily in the dark. Plus, Petra had a new camera and she wanted to try it out, so it was either here or BrynGlas.
I've put some history about the mine in other posts and the adits are a rather enjoyable explore in the woods, so I'm not going to give directions here. Besides, it took us several years to find them all and it was huge fun.
The new camera? It works very well, so I am about to be outclassed...
Happy Christmas and a great, explorational New Year to the five or so regular readers who are kind enough to follow and comment on this blog ...it's been great following your adventures, too, guys. Cheers, Graham, Andy, Wez, Ian A, Andy E!
