Van Mines, Llanidloes, Montgomeryshire
Mineral mining in the Llanidloes district has a long history, pre-dating the Romans, who developed earlier workings. The route of a track from the site of early mines in the hills north-west of Llanidloes to the Roman station at Caersws was closely followed much later, in 1871, by a railway line from the Van Mine to Caersws railway station. And yes the chimney is leaning!
