Dear Welsh Mines Preservation Trust member,

Here at The Silver Mountain Experience/Llywernog Silver-Lead Mining Museum, we are holding our very first Heritage Weekend. We warmly invite you to join us!

Features running throughout the weekend include:

  • Unveiling of the Ore Jiggers working for the first time since the mining era and the Buddle & Jigger Waterwheels turning in unison for the first time in decades (with thanks to members of the Welsh Mines Preservation Trust!)
  • Mining Memorabilia stand – a chance to see mining-era artefacts, documents and books brought in by local organisations and the community

SHARE your own memorabilia from the times of mining

  • Talks & demonstrations
  • Miner’s Life guided underground tour and Time Lab show*
  • Llywernog’s Mining Museum, now with more exhibits & information than ever before (also with thanks to Robert, Ioan and Hugh!)
  • Follow the Miner’s Trail
  • Café travels back in time, offering Victorian treats – why not try a Cornish Pasty while you’re here!

* Extra charges apply for guided tours and Time Lab show

Please see our website for more details and do not hesitate to contact me at

We very much hope you will be able to make it!

Kindest regards,
