    Report - Wrysgan Slate Mine - North Wales - Nov '19

    Report - Penarth Slate Mine - Llangollen - Jan '19

    It seemed a great idea at the time... On the drive back from Cwmorthin Slate Mine in north Wales we though instead of sit in Friday evening traffic around Birmingham why don't we kill an hour at Penarth?
