Following the announcement of a short ‘firebreak’ lockdown by the Welsh Government as of 6pm on Friday 23 October, all Cadw staffed and unstaffed sites will be closed until further notice.
Until we can welcome you back in person, you can visit us virtually through our Open Doors Online 3D tours. All you’ll need is a mobile phone or a desk-top computer — of if you have a VR head-set you can be fully-immersed inside your selected adventure.
Diolch and we hope to see you again soon.
Peaceful remains of a busy industrial hub
Sitting in the shadow of the dam at the southern end of Llyn Clywedog Reservoir, Bryntail’s buildings illuminate a time when this tranquil spot was a bustling site of industry. During the 19th century this was a noisy, smoky place as lead was extracted and processed, before being transported to nearby Llanidloes and shipped down the River Severn.
Bryntail closed in 1884 as the local mining boom came to an end. The remains that still stand include crushing houses, ore bins, roasting ovens, smithy and the mine manager's office.
Daily 10am - 4pm
Last admission 30 minutes before closing
Closed 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January
