4. Silver Lead Mines.

Over 100 old Silver-Lead mines in north Ceredigion employed as many as 5,000 miners and their families in the 1860s.​ The mining ended long ago but the spoil heaps and ruined  buildings are still significant features on the landscape.

Combine a Visit to the Silver Mountain Experience with a tour of the surrounding area. (see below)

On most of our tours we talk about the mining heritage of the area and try to shed a different light upon the remains. Tours can feature a selection of mine sites, miners cottages, chapels and the small lakes created to supply the mines with water to power their pumps and machinery. 

Half day or full day from £195
