The above ground part of an old slate mine. This one was quite deep but unfortunately totally flooded now. This one is in the centre of a small village so care needed to be taken not to bee seen.​

There is also the administrative building but that one seems to get renovated,hence the new coat of paint. Also the camera on the side was a good indication.​

The slate and the miners went down on the same structure. Not sure what the future will bring for this one. Most likely demolishing.​

thanks guys, I do appreciate the comments

It was a shame that the underground was flooded but the upper part was well worth visiting.
