WET WEATHER DAYS-The slate mine at Blenau Ffestiniog (14 miles) makes for a wonderful experience, as soon as you decend on the narrow track railway you understand how dangerous it was all those years ago. Be prepared for a 'eye opener' of a day, just before Ffestiniog as you go down the hill on the left hand side The copper mine at Llandudno (15 miles) was only discovered some twenty years ago and is still being excavated but it is unique and well worth a visit It seems hard to believe that traders sailed in open boats from the Mediterranean a thousand plus years ago to buy copper from the Great Orm Llandudno, it was the largest copper mine in the known world.
There is also a slate mine near Bedgelet, (15 miles) 2 miles before the village on the left hand side. info on table.
