The Hole of Parys
J had spotted an unexpected attraction on Anglesey - a defunct copper mine by the name of Parys Mountain. It didn't appear on any tourist material (we're probably not average tourists; no, correct that, we're definitely not average tourists...). It hardly appeared on the OS map, which, for what was once the biggest copper mine in Europe, is a bit odd.
Anyway, it was free to walk round. The colours were amazing. I'd naively expected lots of green ore but, of course, that's what's been removed - leaving lots of mostly iron ore.
Popped in to Penrhyn Castle (a Victorian over-the-top stylized castle) on the way back and, yes, it was well and truly over the top. Some glorious craftsmanship though.
