      Glendalough

      Glendalough , the valley of the two lakes is not only one of the most scenic areas in Wicklow but has a long historical past dating back to monastic times.

      Glendalough

        Upper Valley

        Upper Valley
        The valley was formed in the last ice by glacial ice slowly moving east. As the ice aged ended and the snow melted a moraine was left at the valley mouth - this moraine - of rock, boulder and silt blocked the river forming a lake. The river flowing from the south slopes eventually deposited silt and cause the upper lake to dam, thus forming the two lakes.

        Miners' Road

        Miners' Road
        The miners' road leads from the car park along the north shore of the lake to a small now deserted village at the western head of the lake. The mines date back to 1809 when the owner of Avoca mines Thomas Weaver discovered a vein of lead. He maintained his interest in the mines till he sold his shares to the Mining Company of Ireland. The mines thrived between 1850 and 1870 as the price of lead soared on the world markets. Some of the old machinery left in situ dates back to his period. The price of ore fell in the 1880s and the mining company have a number of years sold out. Efforts were made to revive mining during the first WW but it wasn't until after the end of the second WW that the mine had another brief period of commercial activity.
