They did seem to be riding down quite well worn paths, although I guess the paths could have been made by foot traffic.One thing is for sure - one slip into that large chamber, they won't be having a 2nd go.Or any of the other chamber openings in the hillside!Chris.
This is just down the road, and by the same bloke:https://www.dyfibikepark.co.uk/Perhaps he's going to expand to Aberllefenni.Chris.
I'm not really up to speed with things in Wales but as a mine site of some importance wouldn't it fall under Cadw?
I thought this place had scheduled monument status?

I'm not sure whether the final grant is something that's been devolved to the Welsh Assembly, if not it's the Culture Secretary who makes the decision on whether to give permission.
It's a devolved matter so nothing at all to do with Westminster's "Culture" Secretary.
Cadw would have been consulted ... It's a devolved matter...
They'll probably try the same at Dinorwic next
