Next Welsh Mines Society Field Meet(s)


Spring (Indoor) Meet - Sunday 24th March 2019

  Hosts : Neil Culross and Jo Dawson, Tel. 01874 638 212,  E-mail : Chairman@Welshmines.org 

  Neil and Jo have kindly offered to again host the spring meet, for 2019, at their home near Brecon : "Tan y Neuadd", Cwmcamlais, Brecon, LD3 8TE.

All members are welcome.  Arrive at any time from 10:30 a.m. onwards.  Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided. 

The meet provides an opportunity for chat, and to show &/or view presentations, however, please note the following :
 - Neil and Jo do not have a digital projector or screen so an offer to provide these would be welcome.
 - It is envisaged that presentations will be shown in the barn, therefore it would be helpful if people could bring a folding camping chair or similar, as the seating will be otherwise limited.

The usual arrangement of a lunch-time buffet meal is offered.  People requiring this should contact Neil by email, by 17th March at the latest, and they will be informed of price etc., once numbers are known.

There is plenty of camping and floor space available for anyone wishing to arrive on the Saturday evening, as well as a limited number of beds on a first-come first-served basis.

There are various mines and quarries within 30–60 minutes drive for those wishing to do something extra, and there is walking in the Brecon Beacons or locally from the front door.

"Tan y Neuadd" is located at NGR : SN 9523 2645 view road atlas or 1:25,000 OS Map.  
Satnav for LD3 8TE says you have arrived when you reach the farm at the top (south end) of the valley – keep going, Tan y Neuadd is about halfway down the valley.
WMS direction signs will be placed on the road junctions at the top (A4215) and the bottom (A40) of the valley.
