Land of Castles
the Country
of Wales


At the terminus of the Ffestiniog Railroad is the LLechweld Slate Mines and Aimee ,my bride, and I visited these slate mines back on our honeymoon in August of 1988 and nearly twenty years later we again visited this mine with our two daughters, Madeline and Anne.


We loaded into little tramcars to descend into the slate mines where a retired mineworker explained the how and whys of slate mining.
