Welcome to the group's web site!

This web site contains information about the historic Parys mountain copper mines near Amlwch in Anglesey.

These mines have been worked since the Bronze age, 3500 year's ago.

During the 18 and 19 th century they were the largest copper mine in the world.

The underground workings were last mined in the early part of the 20th century.

With the kind permission of The Marquis of Anglesey and Anglesey Mining PLC some areas of the mine have been reopened for exploration.
