SH5861 : Dinorwig

taken 12 years ago, near to Dinorwig, Gwynedd, Great Britain

This photograph shows part of the former slate quarrying village of Dinorwig. Since the closure of the quarry, many of the houses have been purchased by outsiders, some for use as holiday homes, and most have undergone a programme of renovation. The house in the foreground is Ty Newydd. Two of the three places of worship, Capel Dinorwig (Calv.Meth.)(middleground), and Santes Mair (Church in Wales),(background, left) have been converted into dwellings. Sardis, Wales' highest chapel, (skyline, right), is still used for services.
