Learn about the history and culture surrounding the Welsh slate mines at Dinorwig Quarry, a Victorian quarry decommissioned in 1969. The National Slate Museum is positioned in the valley beneath Elidir mountain. The area still has some industrial use. At the nearby Dinorwig Power Station there is the aptly named Electric Mountain. Set inside one of the world’s most vast man-made caverns are ten-miles of tunnels used to pump water across a hydroelectric generator. The surge of electricity produced is so massive, it can provide enough energy for the whole of Wales. Image Credits: Martin Turgoose on Unsplash
