Corris is a popular location found 6 miles north of the historic town of Machynlleth, the ancient capital of Wales, amd lies on the west bank of the river Dulas, which here forms the county boundary between Gwynedd/Merionethshire and Powys/Montgomeryshire, Powys being to the east of the river.
The Afon Deri runs through the village before joining the Dulas. The modern A487 trunk road was built by the quarry owners in the 1840s and bypasses the village.
The area is known for its natural history and for its industrial heritage. The nearby Corris Craft Centre showcases the work of local craftspeople. Several former slate mines penetrate the hillsides, and parts of what was once Braichgoch quarry can be visited on a tourist trip called "King Arthur's Labyrinth". Two miles south of Corris is the Centre for Alternative Technology.
From Machynlleth pass over the Dyfi Bridge and proceed on the A470 for 6 miles. At Corris on the main A487, continue past the War Memorial and Kings Arthur Labrinyth. The access lane to the site is just after the "Food Shack" lay by below the road.
