Join one of Wales' top Mine Explorers on an exploration of a virtually untouched abandoned Welsh Slate Mine. First worked in 1836 and abandoned by the miners in the early 1970s, more than 130 years of mining history is captured inside waiting to be discovered. It's as if the mine has just closed. Machinery, tools, even the candles and discarded cigarette packets are still in place as the miners left them. Corris Mine Explorers gives you the opportunity to visit these abandoned slate mine workings, to step into the tough working lives of the miners and of past generations. 3 trips to choose from: 1 hour Taster, 2 hour Mine Explorer and a Half Day Mine Expedition. Advance Booking Essential.
Corris Mine Explorers trips start from the Corris Craft Centre, a finalist in the National Tourism Awards 2015 for Best Day Out!
