We parked here by accident when visiting the Stiperstones but found out there is more here than meets the eye, with old ruins of an old mining village. Definitely worth a look at if you are into history.

I stumbled on this place, I'd never heard of it, and was heading elsewhere. It's quite a remarkable story, and one I'm glad I now know something about. There's not masses here, but it's worth looking up and finding, it's a real hidden gem.
