SH7507 : Corris

taken 40 years ago, near to Corris, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Corris.
Corris.
This is Corris in about 1978 from Mynydd Fronfelen. The village's foundation was slate mining in the 19th C. The main road (top left) has just been rebuilt: during that process slate tips slowly weathering back to nature were bulldozed, and a certain amount of industrial heritage destroyed. At the time it was referred to as 'cosmetic landscaping'.
