    Default Rhosydd slate quarry North Wales ....


    Visited this place many times over the years (even back to when i was @10 years old with my Dad) even managed to trip through the number 9 adit up the internal incline and out at the 5 adit level into the collapsed Twll .
    This particular visit was surface only due to having the Mrs and the dogs (the Mrs usually accompanies me underground ...the dog's however are another matter )

    On the way up past Cwmorthin's barracks





    Half buried track and sleepers on the Tramway down from Conglog Mine at the head of Cwm Cwmorthin



    Rhosydd Chapel





    AND how it was when i was @10 ;)





    And some of the buildings up at Rhosydd ...

    I just love the old slate mines,they worked in horrendous conditions and had to buy their own candles to work by!!!
    There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.
