Moel yr Ogof, Beddgelert

SH 55955 47810; 53.00815°N, 4.14831°W

Information

The trial asbestos mine is located close to Owain Glyndwr’s Cave on Moel yr Ogof on the south western edge of Beddgelert Forest. The trial extends back some seven or eight metres, following a seam of white asbestos. Water percolates through the working and so the vein is very damp, rendering the mineral somewhat soft and gungy.
