I recently paid a visit to the disused Maenofferen Slate Quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog with fellow photographer Jason Edwards. We found these massive sheds that were still full of slate cutting and trimming machinery, old railway engines, wagons, tools – all just left when it closed back in 1997. As I wandered around, I found it sad that this way of life that had for so long provided valuable employment for so many local people had just ceased to be.
