The Glasdir Copper Trail Details

Very easy woodland ramble in the Coed y Brenin forest park.

From the FC Website:

“The walk takes you through the old copper mine of Glasdir where copper was mined from 1852 to 1914. It was here that the owner Alexander Elmore patented a method of extracting copper from the ore using oil flotation. This method is still used World wide today. There are a number of flights of steps on this walk. Please take care not to stray from the paths as the old works are dangerous.”

There’s a Free MP3 available via the link as well.
