Former slate quarry, Porthgain
Former slate quarry, Porthgain
In the centre you can just about make out the tunnel of PenTop quarry which was cut so a tramline could link it to the harbour, making the slate extraction easier and also, to help with drainage. Slate quarrying took place here between 1850 and 1910. A water-powered mill was used to cut the slates to size.
