These gold mines were worked 2000 years ago by the Romans and mining resumed there in the 19th century and carried on through the 20th century. Their underground workings are now open to visitors to this National Trust property. There are guided tours, an exhibition about the history of gold mining and an opportunity to try gold panning and experience for yourself the frustration of searching for gold. There are also waymarked walks and picnic areas on this estate overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley. Check the website to find out when special events are being held, such as Roman weekends and Easter trails.
