21st to 25th June 2022

We stayed near Court Henry for four nights. From our accommodation we could see a ruined castle and a tower, so we had to visit them – both had panoramic views.

The Romans were here for 200 years; the Victorians looked and a search was made in the early 1900s. The mining equipment here now represents mining in the 1930s.

A guide took us up hill

to see the Roman gold mines, where one of the tunnels was surprisingly big
