These are a series of contaminated sites within the Rhydhymwyn Valley Gas Works. At one time the most secretive site within British military rule. The sites were dug in the 1990’s to determine the amount of contamination from the production of Pyro and Mustard gas that took place at the site. The testing that was conducted revealed varying amounts of contamination,even the dicovery of a container that had mustard gas in it.. From my look at the test results, they revealed that alot of the contamination was caused by burying alot of the contaminated equipment used in its manufacure. According to those working today at the site, they are best to be left alone
