Nice find! I hope it will come to be very useful, it's a great pity that so little can be found about North Wales. I went to Dewi Lloyd's talk at Hidden Earth this year and was amazed to see all the stuff described.

Google sites is a great tool to put together a community website quickly.

If it helps, our clubs (north wales based) web forum has a knowledge bank which you might also find to be a useful browse.

That is indeed an interesting site. Especially with the photos. Any idea which group or individual set it up ?

The content and text are quite similar to that described in Cris Ebbs' book 'An introduction to the caves of north-east wales'

Given Cris also uses google sites for the flintshire lead mining pages:

It wouldn't suprise me if he was involved.
