Information

The tunnel, approximately 450 m long, connected Fron-boeth slate quarry with an incline on the other side of a ridge on the western slopes of Moelwyn Mawr. The incline, 300 m north east of the tunnel exit, carried slate wagons down into Cwm Croesor and onto the Croesor Tramway.

The tunnel is blocked about 30 m in from this end, although there is evidence of work being carried out to clear the collapsed material.
