In May 2013 the Trust held a Heritage Weekend to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Sir Hugh Myddelton’s New River in London, by visiting the mines he was associated with in Mid Wales. Part of this included holding a short service at the site of the derelict chapel that Sir Hugh built for his miners C.1620, in memory of his work and the miners that worked there almost four hundred years ago.
