Parys Mountain. Former Copper Mine, Anglesey.

Parys Mountain near Amlwch is a former copper mine that has been made into a series of walking trails. There are some information boards telling the history of the mines and a couple of the old buildings can be accessed.

If you are a photographer, the area is great for pics as the colours of the ground come out dramatically in photographs, especially against a blue sky.

I always love walking around Parys Mountain. Although, the mine workings have scarred the landscape, it has become a recognisable feature on the approach to Amlwch.

Parking is free.

The Remains of RAF Woodhall Spa

Today, parts of the old RAF base at Woodhall Spa make up the Thorpe Camp Visor Centre. However, if you look around the area, there are other hidden remains of the old base.

Before my visit, I found some blog posts and watched some YouTube videos on the derelict parts of the base. However, when I got to Woodhall Spa, some of them have now sadly been demolished (video below).

However, if you know where to look (some locals told me) there are still some buildings that remain.
