SH7075 : Sett-makers huts

Sett-makers huts
Sett-makers huts
Stone-built huts to shelter the workers at the East Quarry have been variously extended and repaired in red brick and concrete blocks produced within the quarry. Substantial slab rooves have been made (as elsewhere in the quarry) by pouring rough concrete onto scrap steel screens from the crushing mill. Slate would be useless here as the wind would be ferocious at times. This is a poignant sight as the huts still contain piles of rough stone to be shaped and finished to size. The buildings are similar to the 'gwaliau' of the slate quarries (SH5860 : Gwaliau on the first level). Heather now grows abundantly at this erstwhile hive of industry.
