Scheduled Ancient Monument consent has been granted for underground works in Lefel Fawr which involves stabilisation of a sagging timber above the skipway and improvement of access by replacing the second plastic drum with a steel lined roadway.

Work is expected to commence January 2016.

Would underground visitors please avoid any cordoned off areas and not interfere with tools or building materials etc. It may also be necessary to close the climbing route above the skipway, however the descent of the skipway should remain unaffected.

Subject to this general access is expected to remain unaffected.
