I'm having a little trouble picturing where this is. Does it raise the possibility of legitimate access to the mines on the other side of the stream if the landowner has changed? Or am I getting the wrong end of the stick?

Its only Lower or Blue Dines that definitely has no legitimate access without the landowners permission. Middle Dinas has an access directly off the right of way, the other side of the footbridge, and legal owner is the Marquis of Bute. Of course, 'Johnny Bute' also owns the lower but it would mean crossing the sild landowners side of the river. Bit complicated.

All the Pencaedrain mineral rights are Bute.

Which is the one just over the river that is flooded and is a dive apparently Martin Farr dived it some years ago we have seen it from the footpath but not waded over ?

Thats the one. I am told it was blocked but Martin dug it open years ago.

Pity you didn't ask about the land ownership and mine access. Never any harm is asking.
