Looking across Cwm Rheidol from Rhiwfron halt on the Vale of Rheidol railway. Level 6 of the mine is about 150m above the valley floor, with spoil running down the very steep hillside. Lead and zinc ore were mined at Cwm Rheidol in the early 20th century. The mine was connected to Rhiwfron halt via an aerial ropeway to take ore to Aberystwyth by train.
