Visiting Sygun Coppermine, Wales

Sygun Coppermine, Snowdonia

We’ve been to see a lot of different things with the children but we haven’t been to a real mine. So during this holiday, we decided to check out Sygun Coppermine in Beddgelert.

This was a self guided tour which took about 40 minutes, there are loads of steep steps to climb, it is wet, 9˚C cold and dark. Hardhats are a must and are available in the building seen above. They also have a mini museum full of very interesting artifacts!

Once inside, there are recorded information about the people working in the mine, the condition and challenges of their job, etc.snowdonia15-8090019 snowdonia15-8090023 snowdonia15-8090033
Yay! My Olympus EM5 markII with in camera image stabilisation is doing very well in low light condition!

After an interesting 40 minute (ish) tour, we came out of the side of the mountain with a great view!
