A view across Cwmorthin lake from above the tips showing the fingers of slate waste tipped into the lake
In the distance the track climbs towards Rosydd and Conclog mines. The hillside where I am standing is pitted with cracks and depressions due to subsidence from Cwmorthin and Oakley mines, the latter being just over the ridge behind me. There were disputes as to where the boundaries of these two mines lay underground!
