Heritage Weekends

Most years since 2004, the WMPT has held a Heritage Weekend in Mid Wales. The weekends consist of guided walks around mining sites led by members of the Trust and an evening of illustrated talks. These weekends are mainly aimed at local people and visitors but are open to anyone who wishes to attend. You can find out about our next heritage weekends and other upcoming events here. Pictures from some of our heritage weekends are at the bottom of the page.
