More Than 100 Cars Found In Mine

More than 100 cars have been found 200-feet underground in the bottom of an abandoned slate mine in North Wales.

The mine was closed more than half a century ago and date from the 1970s. Urban explorers made the discovery after a trek through the mine and IT Engineer Gregory Rivolet spent 4 hours exploring the ‘dangerous’ and ‘unstable’ mine.

 

 

The mine is believed to have opened in 1836 and work there continued until 1960 until it was abandoned.

 

It is a mystery as to how the cars ended up at the bottom of the mine.
