Mills & Mines, and more – 2016

Sunday 22nd May 2016

Mills & Mines, and more
An uphill walk above the Crafnant valley to the site of the old Pandora Mine above Llyn Geirionydd, with extensive views. Lunch stop at Geirionydd picnic site (bring a packed lunch) where there are toilets. The downhill return route on the far side of the lake and via Klondyke Mill is in places more uneven underfoot.

Local history of all sorts will be encountered throughout the walk, but the emphasis will be on enjoying what is a splendid walk in its own right. We will be back at Trefriw in time to enjoy the CakeFest in the village hall.

Meet: 09.30 am at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
