Underneath The Arches

The photograph of Gwrych Castle I posted the other day proved popular, so here’s another shot from my Photo Tour back in 2010, this time of the carriage drive leading from the rear of the castle to the front, past the former Stables. I’ve taken nearly 1,000 photographs of Gwrych Castle over the past couple of years – an attempt to document its present condition before either renovation work starts or final decay sets in.

Maenofferen

Looking down towards Blaenau Ffestiniog from the Maenofferen Slate Quarry. Full scale slate quarrying ceased here in 1997, leaving the Quarry buildings abandoned and intact. A full Photo Tour can be found on the Flickr website here.

Passing Of An Era…

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.
