Today's adventure is our terrifying explore of this huge abandoned Silver, Zinc and Lead mine in the heart of Wales. This is considered one of the most important non-ferrous mines in Wales and evidence shows mining activity since the bronze age. It's a long one folks, I filmed the complete explore of the one portal that we got into but I'm sure there's other portals and shafts that I never found because it's a massive site in between and inside the mountains, maybe a return visit is on the cards. I also didn't film any of the outside of this site but there were many old mine buildings and workings around, I did take still shots though, which you will be able to see on my instagram page. EXPLORING ABANDONED MINES IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!! Thanks for watching, Enjoy Folks! Follow my social media on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/upalevelproductions/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/upalevelproductions/ Filmed on the Gopro Hero 5 black and Nikon D3200 I do not recommend anyone exploring these abandoned places, they are very dangerous, we explore so you don't have to! We do not break and enter, we do not steal and we do not vandalise. We take only pictures and leave only footprints.

https://www.facebook.com/carlthepianist Photographers Andy T and Carl Lewis explore the subterrainain, 19th century Level Fawr of the Cwmystwyth mine. High up in the Cambrian Mountains, the young Afon Ystwyth flows through a deep glacial valley. Cwm Ystwyth is considered the most important non-ferrous metal mining site in Wales providing a premier example of mining heritage in Ceredigion. Within the site there is evidence for all phases of mining activity; from the Bronze Age, through the medieval period, to its revival in the 18th century and the peak of activity with a subsequent decline in the late 19th and the early 20th century. It has been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The site also features prominently in the Upland Ceredigion Landscape of Historic Interest. Our trip was prepared for a planned and we took all suitable precautions to protect our safety. Please see the following website for more information on the dangers of exploration and how to reduce risk: http://www.mine-explorer.co.uk/open-htm-white-paper.asp?id=1 Please ensure of you are both prepared and have permission before entering any mine of cave. This video should not be taken as fact and is for entertainment purposes only. Mines or caves can change overnight. This video was taken in January 2014. Stay safe and enjoy. (c) 2014 Carl Lewis

Copper mining is probably the oldest known mining activity in Wales with documented evidence of Bronze Age mining on the Great Orme near Llandudno and at Copa Hill in the valley of the River Ystwyth in Ceredigion. Further copper discoveries were exploited in Snowdonia just to the east of Beddgelert where the Sygun Copper Mine, within the Snowdonia National Park, gives an idea of the conditions faced by copper miners and is a popular tourist attraction. In the 18th century the massive deposits of copper together with a range of other metals was discovered and exploited at Parys Mountain on Anglesey.

Welcome back #HunterSquad #HunterFamily #AbandonedFamily #Urbex This is 2019's first Exploring video, and omg! are you in for a treat! We explored an abandoned mine! This mine was featured on TV by the BBC for a program called (COAL HOUSE) which aired in 2007. A few years before the mine closed. in 2009 the mine closed its doors for good! Blaentillery Drift mine was mining coal that came from a seam called the Brithdir Seam No2. Im not sure how much they got in terms of coal. The mine owners used some men from Big Pit which is less than a mile away from the Blaentillery Mine! Not much history can be found on this mine. I hope that you enjoy this video!

During the summer of 2013, SES Contracting Limited were commissioned by Byzak Limited on behalf of United Utilities to undertake remedial works in Miller Tunnel in North Wales. The remedial scheme was designed by Specialist Consultants, Wardell Armstrong, following a comprehensive tunnel examination. Miller tunnel was constructed between 1897 and 1957 to drain water from the lead mines between Holywell and Mold. United Utilities are responsible for maintaining the water flow in the tunnel, which runs a distance of 10 miles between Bagilt and Loggerheads

The Dinorwig Slate Quarry was one of the largest slate quarries in the world. Today the scars of the side of the mountain along with the tips of slate waste are a silent testimony to the industrialisation of the beautiful North Wales valley. Slate quarrymen were a special breed of highly skilled workers who laboured in what we would now be seen as appaling conditions in the face of the prevailing elements, forever running the risk of death, ill health and serious injury. Winner of 2 awards... 'Best Newcomer' Jason Jones at the 2012 LLAMFF film fesival and 'Best Documentary' at the Camarthen Bay fim fesival 2012.

A bit shakey in parts. A trip out with the Wirral Caving Group to Garreg Boeth Lead mine in Wales, this place has some of the loveliest mineral formations that I have ever seen. It is a little muddy and a bit wet but well worth the effort, we saw an old powder keg and and some of the most fantastic formations that I have ever seen, things like Crinoids and cave pearls and all sorts of calcite and flowstone pretties, I wished that I had taken a proper camera in the end but I am sure that I will be going back here. some info below taken from Flintshire county councils places website:- Workings remain as shafts and mounds to the south of the Hendre Valley and the A541 Road. The largest shafts occur in the Garreg-Boeth Woods and Big Wood at SJ18656760 and continue eastwards to SJ19156755. The Garreg-Boeth Vein was later developed by the South Halkyn and Rhydymwyn Mining Company when the Halkyn Deep Level Tunnel reached the sett in 1908. The Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein ran east to west to the north-west of Big Wood. Smith (1921) refers to seven shafts along the Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein as Robert's, Pritchard's, Eyton's, Williamson's, Marquis, Tyddyn-y-barcud and Ddol, being those that can be traced through the woodland.

I should have titled this video "Big massive shaft" ha ha I'm such a crazy. I wasn't entirely on my own for this explore, my pal was topside, so if I had of been in trouble I would have been found. DO NOT GO EXPLORING ABANDONED MINES FOLKS! I cannot stress how dangerous this is, instant death can await you! Sorry about the knocky noises on the audio, this Gopro 5 picks up every vibration, gotta fix that somehow.

The mine lies in an area of prominent spoil to the right of the Cyffty to Llyn Geirionydd road. The early shallow workings were based on the Champion and Francis lodes to the south east. There are a number of open workings and two shallow adits. An underground shaft (rigged) connects shallow Francis lode workings with deeper workings on the Goddard Lode. In order to exploit the New and Goddard lodes, a number of shafts were sunk including the Engine (Spion Kop) and Ladderway Shaft. Both of these have now been filled in. Later, the 500m long Pontifex Adit was driven from Llyn Geirionydd to intercept the New Lode. This adit is open but fenced off and is found near the Llyn Geirionydd

The ruins of Hafna Mine are a fascinating legacy of an industry that once operated in the hills of the old Gwydyr Estate. Lead mining took place intermittently in the area from the early 1600s until the 1920s. Standing beside the lane that climbs to Llyn Sarnau, Hafna Mine, which still has its tall chimney, operated from 1879 util about 1915. There are several interpretative panels explaining the working of the mine, mill and smelter. A two mile walk called The Miners Trail starts from the car park at Llyn Sarnau and takes in Hafna Mine and other mining sites.I created this video with the YouTube Slideshow Creator (http://www.youtube.com/upload)

In this video I'm exploring the wonderful Penallta Colliery, a location I first visited almost 10 years ago. The mine operated from 1905 until 1991 (the year I was born) and did you know in 1935 the mine held the record for the most coal wound in a 24 hour period. This place has some epic stair cases, graffiti and the tile was next level. Hope you enjoy it guys and I'll see you at the next one 🤙🏼 Peace and love as always.

23rd May 2017 In setting up my new channel there were a couple of videos that I couldn't transfer across because I was unable to either edit out the copyright material or edit out my daughter's name. A visit with my daughter to Killhope Lead Mining Museum was one of those videos. So I chose to go back to Killhope and reshoot my video but this time bringing with me a brighter torch than the ones they give you which are set to the same brightness as one candle. In this video, I take you around the outbuildings of the mine. In the next video titled 'Park Level Mine', I take you into the mine itself (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFlGChSGp5o). In this video I do not include the red squirrel hide or the examples of bell mines that are part of the museum but sited further up the hill. Killhope forms the end of the Lead Road, although this video does not end my series of walking the Lead Road. I still have at least a couple more walks to do with regards to the Lead Road series. I had intended on walking one of those walks but I miscalculated the distance involved and as such worked out I didn't have time to do the walk and be back in time to pick up my daughter from school, so I headed to Killhope and Groverake mine instead. It was a little windy so please excuse the wind noise. Thank you for watching and please like & subscribe.

Blaenau Ffestiniog's Maenofferen was first worked for slate shortly after 1800 and ceased mining in 1999, and with it the end of large-scale underground working for slate in north Wales. Although they continue "untopping" underground workings to recover slate from the supporting pillars of the chambers.
