... the ticket booth on the station, and the nice lady there allowed me to put my backpack into their storeroom, as the train didn't leave for a bit under three hours and I didn't want to lug it around for that whole time.
Divested of my pack, I made my way up through the town and along the road to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns - the remains of a Victorian slate quarry that is now open to tourists. There's a couple of adventure pursuits there - a massive trampoline ...
