Magical Day at Parys Mine Amlwch

Parys Mountain View
We had a great day out on Sunday, 9th May at Parys Mountain on Anglesey. First we went to Southstack Lighthouse and thought that it was a fantastic place.
Then my great friend Helen said, "Let's go to Parys mountain. I went there as a child."
Well, what a beautiful place to photograph!
I have recently looked up the history of this fascinating place and I'm making plans to visit again in the near future.
Editor: Thanks for sharing your experience Raymond. You are right, this is a fantastic location to visit as your photo above clearly shows.
Did you by chance notice the works nearby, where Anglesey Mining has been carrying out further investigations with a view to mining for copper?
The nearby town of Amlwch is also known as an "Ancient Copper Town" for its long historic association with this fascinating "copper mountain."
