THIS TRIP HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO A POOR WEATHER FORECAST AND LIKELY BAD CONDITIONS UNDERFOOT. Lots to photograph in this old Welsh slate quarry. The valley contains a lake and small waterfall as well as derelict structures including a now very dilapidated chapel and iconic slate 'fences' - great ingredients for your landscapes! A walk up the hill opens up the scenery and takes you to more derelict buildings and some scattered industrial remains.
