underground in Wales

Note: from Dad This was a underground exploration with full kit plus very experienced leaders ,
It is not something that you should  undertake lightly or on your own ,

I had to set off early in the morning as this was a long drive from our house ,  this mine was where they  mined iron and coal

one of the pit props

some of the coal  we found ,

a old rail

I had to clamber over a lot of rocks and boulders as the mine had different levels.

people were very kind to me and told me a lot of things about how they used to mine, they took time to explain things to me and to keep me safe

one of the tunnels we don’t have a good camera which can take photos in the dark  , my dad had to take the photos !

I had to climb over some big boulders I really enjoyed this and was very grateful I had been invited

old stone rail tracks ?
