Dinorwig Quarry closed in 1969. Today, rather than fashioning wagons and forging rails, the workshops tell a very special story: the story of the Welsh slate industry.

This is a rare opportunity to see one of the only functional slate-carrying inclines at work, along with a talk by the museum's keeper, Dr Dafydd Roberts.
