Maenofferen good quality plan?
« on: January 04, 2022, 09:50:41 pm »
Hello, and thanks to UKC for the temporary forum, first of all.

Have done a couple of good explorations of Maenofferen mine, but to speed up subsequent visits in these short days, does anyone have a good quality map of the workings they'd be willing to share?  There's one online, but it's not quite good enough for unfamiliar areas.

If you're headed up there, the track approaching the upper mill level has very recently been inundated (photo attached) with a significant rock washout, and makes for a slightly slower ascent than usual. 

Also, far too much rubbish is being left down there and other mines in the area under the increased visits of domestic tourism.  So if you're likely to throw rubbish, please don't - and maybe even take a few pieces of rubbish away in a bag with you.

Thanks!
J.

I was thinking that question but the name didn’t ring any bells

There was an early plan produced in 1877 (but I can't find it other than grahami aditnow personal album https://www.aditnow.co.uk/Photo/Part-Of-Maenofferen-1877_8569/), clearly a lot of work was done after that but the initial portals and layouts are starting to show. Hope it is of some small help.
If you find a better and more recent one, please post a link here
