Hi folks,

Trip update.

You have a choice of two trips dependant on what takes your fancy.

TRIP No. 1: Join Murph with rigging up Bryn Celyn shaft. Layby parking is just before Rhydymywyn Caravan Park.

TRIP No. 2: Join Sweetie at the Spar Mine, Hendre. Parking at The Oak in Hendre.

Further details are in the comments below. Thank you and enjoy.

Apologies for late update, it is the joy of working long night shifts and not being able to sleep during the day!

Unfortunately I am working nights again so I cannot get out.

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

6.45 - 7. I'll ring the pub about parking. If the newbie cries off, I might have a look at the drainage adit below spar mine too.

I've sorted it with the Oak to use their car park. As always, please use the far end of the car park and don't open the gates yourself if they're not open already (He's opening them at 6.30 for us)

Cheers
