                     Parc Wall Trial

Parc Wall trial had been known about for a long time, but since its original inspection during the early days, before the society was formed, it had been left alone with rocks covering the entrance.

During 2002 it was noticed that some person unknown had started to expose the entrance, it was therfore decided to re-enter the trial, survey the workings and reseal the entrance.

This series of images detail the work involved in installing a new entrance with a couple of the photos being of the inside of the mine.
