Following our tour of the Electric Mountain, we headed to the Slate Caverns. This area of Wales is known for it's high quality slate and has been mining the rock for hundreds of years. The Llechwedd Slate Caverns where we visited have a working quarry and our guide for the afternoon still works as a miner.
We began our tour with a self guided "deep-mine" exploration, which required a ride on a very steep incline trolley.
