This weeks trip is to Garreg Boeth Mine

This trip is suitable for novices. You will may get wet as water goes to thigh depth. You can choose not to see the back half of the mine and avoid most of the water if you prefer. This is an opportunity to see the whole mine if you haven’t seen it all (or at all).

Location: Garreg Boeth Mine

Meet Place: Hendre (Roadside parking only between Hendre village and The Oak freehouse on Mold-Denbigh road. Please do not block any driveways/gateways and avoid parking directly in front of houses if you can.)

Meet Time: 6:30pm-6:45pm

Requirements: Wellies, overalls, helmet, lamp.

Notes: Standard caving gear. No SRT required.


It would be useful to know who’s coming along so if you can pop a message on the forum, facebook or reply that would be great.

Thanks

Vikki

Yes, bring him .... it will be good to see you underground again too ...

Don't park at the Oak it's too far away. Park in the little village of Hendre - you should see all out cars there (on the main road parked up at the side)

Murf do you need a key to get in the way we went in on Thursday? Some of the team was thinking of going for a look in two weeks time.
