We spent a most interesting couple of hours exploring this old industrial site. The information boards provided us with detailed knowledge about the areas past.

This helps you to understand the local scenery and history of the area and indeed much of Wales. Definitely worth a visit.

Parys Mountain is fascinating and well worth a visit. Good marked paths to explore. Copper Kingdom Museum also worth visiting. We enjoyed both very much.
