Florida or Abbey Consols Lead Mine
Florida or Abbey Consols Lead Mine
This is a very old mine, first worked by the monks from Strata Florida Abbey in the 14thC. The lode runs a little below the wood on the slope of Pen Bannau, several shafts and open workings show its location.
Here is where a connecting adit was driven in 1856 and behind me are dressing floors and large dumps of spoil.
