Have you ever imagined how difficult it is to dispose of an old car wreck. Start pulling and paying a small fee for withdrawing old cars that we want to throw in the trash can until they are recycled again.
But, far away there is a village where, where the local residents threw all their car wreckage into a cave or a large hole, and this has been going on for decades. They can safely dump various junk into the cave or giant hole.
The Cavern of Lost Souls
A resident of a small village named Corris Uchaf in North Wales, for decades they have thrown various unused or junk items such as refrigerators, scrap metal, old cars, old tvs, and various other objects into a large hole in a mountain.

The small village called Corris Uchaf used to be a scenic spot with many slate quarries surrounding it. But then, these mines ran out of product and were abandoned so that they became quite safe landfills for local people.
The landfill in this photo is a slate mine called the Gaewern Slate Mine which was opened in the early 1800s and operated until 1906, when demand decreased, this slate mine was closed and after the First World War, the mine was back in operation. It continued to operate until it was permanently closed in 1971.
Meanwhile, the change of function from mining to landfill began several years after the mine stopped operating. It’s like the secret of a small village in the mountains called Corris Uchaf, in the mountains and this old mine is called “the Cavern of Lost Souls”.
This place was discovered several years ago by explorers. They found a lot of junk, even hundreds of rusty cars that had been thrown away long ago. This is a concern and favorite of photographers in the UK.
