Llanberis National Slate Museum
We will visit Llanberis on the Thursday. While there, we will spend time exploring the National Slate Museum. The local area grew up and developed through the impact of slate mining. The rock is to be found everywhere you look. We will learn about the fascinating story of how slate created the landscape and changed the lives of the people living here.
At the museum we will watch a film about how “to steal a mountain” and watch a demonstration on the skilful craft of slate-splitting.
