About
David and Stephen continue their walk from Avoca and make their way towards the mining zone. The mines operated from the late 1700’s until 1982 but their legacy remains and is visible everywhere. This part of their walk which is the second part of the walk from Avoca takes them uphill to a viewing point called Crone Bane, which has panoramic scenes across the whole valley. They meet Tom Connolly who recounts his working life in the mines. The cross here commemorates miners who died in the Avoca mines.
