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.

Shropshire Photographic Society will be hosting a lecture from the world renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite at the Walker Theatre, The Severn Theatre, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8FT.
Instantly recognisable, Charlie Waite’s landscapes are rare perfections of light, colour and composition, offering the viewer a glimpse of a moment of beauty carefully framed by a master craftsman. Charlie Waite’s photographs aim to encourage an emotional response from the viewer based on the silent exchange between viewer and landscape. Tickets will be available from the theatre box-office in December.
