I make no apologies for featuring Cwt-y-Bugail again...we've been studying this mine for a little over six years and despite exploring it scores of times, it never fails to yield more secrets; sometimes major discoveries, other times just something small, but always very satisfying.
The first time we ventured into the South Twll, six years ago, we gazed down at the abyss in horror...it seemed that the pit was an act of great mischief.. how this could have happened? Now, we have a fairly good idea.
|The pit, looking down from Level B. The small shelter seen in the first photo can just be made out in the centre here.|
|Looking up at the roof of C2, where it breaks into B2 above.|
|The roofing shaft from D. The impressions of rails and sleepers seem to carry completely over the shaft, so they must pre-date it. The C passage carries on at the other side.|
More delving into the black depths of the mine soon.
