- A mountain of old wrecked cars from the late 1970's have been found in an abandoned slate mine in Welsh by a group of explorers who were venturing down a closed mine since 1960.
- Gregory Rivolet, 31, an IT Engineer have spent almost four hours venturing inside this dangerous cave.
A team of daring explorers led by Gregory Rivolet discovered a massive mine which was closed in 1960 with wrecked cars resting upon the shallow caves.
Mr Rivolet said that exploring the whole mine was very risky, pieces of slates were just sliding and falling above their heads.
The whole place wasn't secure and has the risk and possibility to collapse at any given time.
The adventure though sure was worth it, for it was surreal to discover mass amounts of cars dating back to the late 1970's.
These cars were piled up 200ft from the mouth of the cave down to a large pool of water residing at the bottom.
Mr Rivolet's theory is that these cars accidentally lose control from the road nearby and fell down there to their own graveyards.
“The road is pretty dangerous in this area, especially when wet. It was probably too expensive to tow cars up and out into the nearest town." said Rivolet.
According to Gregory the mine opened up around 1836 and closed up around 1960 and has been abandoned since then.
Amazing discovery that was!
