SJ1848 : Slate Spoil Heap opposite Moel y Faen

taken 10 years ago, near to Pentredwr, Denbighshire/Sir Ddinbych, Great Britain

Slate Spoil Heap opposite Moel y Faen
Slate Spoil Heap opposite Moel y Faen
This is the top of the spoil heap across the minor road from the Moel y Faen quarry. The quarry itself is behind the camera. On the 1879 O.S. map a branch of the main quarry tramway is shown crossing the minor road and extending out on to this heap, which probably explains the curved line between the smaller piles of slate seen in this photo. There is no sign of the tramway today.
