This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.

A walk for those that are hungover, not a morning person or neither of these and jus fancy a later start

A twenty minute drive from the campsite, this relatively short walk amongst the mountains includes thousands of years of history and goes via;

  • "Pant y Griafolen Huts and Enclosures" - a prehistoric settlement
  • Melynllyn Hone Quarry - This site started operations as a slate quarry in the 1860s and then started exploiting a hone-stone vein. Operations continued until 1907. Consists of levels, winding house, inline and small barrack house. 

  • Maeneira Dam - Stone dam across Afon Dulyn watercourse

  • Dulyn Bothy - Building history linked to nearby reservoir construction mid-1880s. 

Bring your drones and a packed lunch.
