Hi folks,

This weeks trip is to Bryn Celyn Shaft, Rhydymwyn. This is new ground for us. If you have not explored it, please take the chance. Murph and Dave are putting the final ladder in Thursday afternoon so you will not require SRT.

MEET TIME: 6:30 - 45pm
MEET POINT: Small layby/parking area next to footbridge just before Leete Valley (Rhydymwyn) Caravan Park, Nant Alyn Mill Rd, CH7 5HD. The little layby is on the riverside of the lane opposite the caravan parks camping field.
N.B: Please park sensibly and as tight as you can and be cautious of soft ground around the edges of the parking area. DO NOT BLOCK THE LANE OR PARK ON FOOTBRIDGE.

ENJOY☺☺

I am on nights this week but off Thursday so hope to be out.

Belgrave can be done in a fortnights time.

Regards, Steve,
You're never late with a V8, sadly I do not own a V8!

Murf has suggested Bryn Celyn - it's laddered now so SRT not needed .... there are other adits nearby.

Posting for a friend ....
A door, once opened, may be stepped through in either direction

I'll put Bryn Celyn up with the usual start time of 6:30-45pm as there is a few other adits nearby to potentially peak into.

This afternoon Mick & I managed to fit another short ladder, some timber stabilisers and also had a first stab at a fitting a scaff board 'step'. The mine topology is a bit awkward as the sloping section has a channel down the centre and so an extra wood fillets will be needed to prevent loss of spoil.

Had a quick look in the Alyn Gorge where the river was still running very fast and the 'leak' seems to have undermined more of the path. Quite a few cracks and some holes are appearing so it may eventually fall away completely.

Headed back to Bryn Celyn for 18.45 to take a few people up to the shaft and along to the adit further downstream the river.
