Romans is a Victorian mine completely situated within the main center of mining in the Bryniau Poethion area of the Great Orme.

The entrance shaft was dug in Victorian times although there are many areas within the mine that are Bronze Age.

The photographs displayed here have been taken by a variety of club members, due to the large number available these images are not in any particular order.
