Slate mining has been an integral part of Welsh communities for generations. At the Llanberis Welsh Slate Museum, nestled in the valley below Mount Snowdon, the history of the industry since the 19th century is brought to life with workshops, a foundry, forges and waterpowered machinery. The museum houses the largest working waterwheel in the UK. Visitors can watch demonstrations of slate splitting by skilled craftsmen, enjoy refreshments in the tea rooms and browse in the craft shops on site.

Okay, I admit it, I saw slate museum and I immediately thought how could you make a museum out of that subject? On visiting, however, I was pleasantly surprised and more to the point, I learned a great deal about slate, its uses and the men and machines behind the industry in Wales. Very interesting indeed. - Gina Graves
