Slate fence and disused slate workings, Corris Uchaf
These stock fences seem very typical of the North Wales slate mining areas that had their heyday in the latter 1800's - they were made, essentially, from mining by-product (as were the houses and other buildings), so didn't have to travel far. An industrial vernacular.
