Derelict mine buildings on the shores of Llyn Llydaw
Derelict mine buildings on the shores of Llyn Llydaw
The historical record first makes mention of copper mining in this part of Eryri around 1800. Copper continued to be extracted until 1916, when operations were wound up. The derelict building in the centre of the photograph is the remains of a crushing and sorting mill which was constructed by the Britannia Copper Mine in 1898.

In the top right of the picture is the highest mountain in Wales, the 3560ft high Yr Wyddfa.
