Parc Lead MineParc Lead Mine was the last working mine in the Gwydyr Forest and its extensive connections to older mines make it an important resource from the point of view of both history and industrial archaeology. Originally the mine could be accessed from the main level 3 haulage portal or the older level 2 portal which is higher up the hill. A recent collapse in the main portal now prevents direct access to level 3 and so entry is via the level 2 portal.
Access to this mine is subject to a management plan. The documents
below have been submitted to NRW and provide a risk assessment, parking
guidance and a short description of the mine for explorers.
