The mine is very isolated and the end of a single track road, though worth the drive, spectacular views albeit the weather was challenging with hail on the day we went. Before the visit I was not aware of how slate was produced and the hard life of the original miners and how this mine had gone bust before being saved by the revival of slate in the garden.
On the trip you climb up and into mountain to see some of the original chambers blasted out by the miners over 100 years ago. Inside the mine and the walk up was chilly so be prepared.
The staff were both interesting and helpful.
