The enormous slate quarry of which the workshops were now the Slate Museum
At first glace it looks like a natural landscape, But who looks closely can see three inclines, constructed for transporting slate:
We wandered around from water wheel to steam crane, from slate dressing demonstration to foundry tour, from quarrymen's cottage to sawmill, from blacksmith's workshop to canteen. It was very interesting! And it was a good way of spending half a day. But then we departed; we didn't want to get back home too late.
We had a great weekend, with amazing hiking, unbelievable mine exploration, and a lot of cultural heritage. I hope to do that again soon! It was great!
