One of Grosvenor’s current projects is reminiscent of a scene from a Star Trek movie and indeed its location has been used as a film set on many occasions.
The Mona and Parys copper mines were located on Parys Mountain about two miles south of Amlwch in Anglesey. The original name of the area was Mynydd Trysglwyn which is thought to mean a hillside covered in a thick grove of rough trees covered with scaly lichen growth.
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.
