The guided tour of the 'Deep Mine' takes you down a couple of hundred feet into the caverns made by the quarrying of the slate. Our guide was Val, the fifth generation of her family to not only live in Blaenau Ffestiniog, but to work at Llechwedd! Her grandmother was born in the village on the quarry itself, in a building that is now used by the ziplining people to suit up. It was great to have someone who was so ...
