The causeway between the two pits of Upper Glynrhonwy Quarry
The causeway between the two pits of Upper Glynrhonwy Quarry
This causeway provided a link between the reduction areas of the two pits and the rubbish runs. After 1890 most of the reduction was done in a large complex of mills and dressing sheds near the shores of Llyn Padarn and quarried rock was railed through the pits and interconnecting tunnels down to this complex.
