Quarry Hospital Visitor Centre, Padarn Country Park, Llanberis
The hospital was built in the mid 19th century. Its running costs were largely met by the quarrymen's contributions to a Sick Club. Many decades before the National Health Service, the hospital provided free medical care, a weekly payment to a quarryman during his absence from work because of sickness or injury, a payment on retirement, and burial expenses.
The building has been a visitor centre since 1979.
