Lead mine Moelwyn Bach

We had heard there was a lead mine in the foothills of Moelwyn Bach.

In fact we’d been there before and thought it was like all the other mines; a small stone building and piles of shale like debris.

This time we were told to look out for globules of lead and pretty soon we found our first specimen. It took a while to get our eyes in and then we were finding all sorts of wondrous crystals.

Maybe this was where Cromwell got his musket balls for the siege of Harlech?
