allt y crib mixed mine [ tal y bont [ Ceredigion ]] 7 months 2 days ago #37784

appologies for both the convolutewd title - there are 9 " tal y bont"s in wales - spread over 5 counties - fook stupid welsh . and the thread proliferation - mr adams has 4 " tal y bont mine " threads - none of which i can link to this site

so - allt y crib mixed mine @ tal y bont .

CP location SN 65010 89956 - note limited parking [ gated forrestry track entry ]

adit now entry - www.aditnow.co.uk/Mines/Alltycrib-Mixed-Mine_7581/

NOTE - reading the roy fellows PDF = vital :)

general map :
alltycribmapbase.png


dots - light blue = CP , red = shafts known to us [ visited ] , purple = adits explored , dark blue = true location of deep adit shaft

clear as mud :)

the entire area has been reworked by FC // NRW - with plantations - so navigation " off the tracks " is often horrendous

bottom line - its got lots of known stuffs - and more potential

explores :

" phils adit " - now known to be " wilkinson adit "

" survey " :

20200216_174101.jpg


obvios fenced adit above a tip - right next to forrestry track

NGR : SN 65010 89956

wet @ entrance - but soon reaches dry passage

2 unexplored shafts - 1 40m [ on left branch ] - read the warn note from roy fellows

2nd - a 10m drop in a stope - with obvious way on below [ [ 3 plates and nuts required for studs ]

a stope on left branch reaches daylight - both main drives end in collapse

" useless adit " - no proper name known

NGR : SN 64912 89370

" survey "

20200216_174350.jpg


a flat out crawl under slumping adit portal - into knee deep water - mixed progress - walk // crawl // stoop

to a collapse with a peice of ceramic siol pipe

thats it - a trip only for the insane or compleatist


the deep level - unexplored due to incompetance by me

NGR : SN 65354 89379

this was re entered and stabilised over a number of years - by a team headed by roy fellows - read up on the adit now site

needs doing - it looks bonkers - and i now know its true location

the other sfafts and rift - are unknown explores - that need SRT and gear - we shall return

no pictures - cos i CBA with cameras any more
