Mystery Bangor 'Cave'

Not sure if this is a cave or a mine, and whether Bangor (or even Wales!!) is in any way involed. Anyone know about this?


Also on the Daily Mail, but I'm not giving them clicks.

There is a bit of limestone on the side of the Straits, but their entrance appears to be in a dismantled railway cutting, so maybe abandoned rail track in the Peak Disctict? As Chris says, some of that does have the look of a limestone floor with a bit of a channel in it.

The only thing I could think of near Bangor that is of any extent is the Llandegai Iron Mine, but I think that got lost when they built the A55.

I love how they refer to him as a 'Content Creator' over and over again - almost as if he'd asked them to. Doesn't really say much about him though, does it? When he's 'Looking for the exit', haha. I guess a self-made remake of Ace In The Hole would have been poignant though, and got a few more final views. Mind you, if he becomes big enough to be a minor celebrity, they might give him a TV show, where he gets to go on holiday make a documentary over and over again, followed by a camera crew and production team, and we can not watch that either, until the inevitable happens. Sigh.

They say they couldn't find another way out - obviously to stupid/scared to brave the waist deep water of the gour pools and exit via the Ragman mine passage. As noted by Edwardov there are some photos from elsewhere, but none of the really nice stals and flowstone near the pools. Shame they didn't try to free dive the sump and remove themselves from the gene pool :)

lad looks a massive pratt
Looks can be deceptive....

He's an even bigger Pratt than that. I saw a "Collab" from someone who should've known better - and he was dancing about in a pair of trainers in a mine trying not to get feet wet which of course didn't work, when guided by someone wearing warmbac and wellies. Ally Law is securely into the never wear wellies or helmet underground because that's not his "look"

I think my post above was unnecessarily rude. While I don't endorse his GoonTubery and his idiotic not wanting to wear Wellies (or a helmet!!), he did at least to his credit... obscure the location of the video to prevent copycat/fan repeats by saying Bangor not Minera

no it wasnt! he is a guy that thinks breaking into live buildings is the way urbex should be done then brags about how many places in the UK hes banned from (which is literally every theme park, shopping centre & most town centres) hes a plague on every decent explorers lives & I wish he (& most other you tube explorers) would just evaporate!
that said I cant blame him, people like my son actually think hes "cool" & its because of these people that he makes over 500k a year with his stupid "stunts".

I stand corrected! If that's the case "Cunning stunt" would describe him.

I now feel guilty that I increased his video hit count by watching it, although surely he can't really make that much money from YouTube? I thought only the top very few actually made any real money

You can make $300-$500 for 100,000 views. If you get up to a million, then a video every fortnight would probably allow you to go full time. Most of the channels I watch are in the 10k - 50k region, so that's just a bit of pocket money. The likes of Colin Furze and Tom Scott though must be making a bomb.
