Pit at Rosebush slate quarry
Pit at Rosebush slate quarry
This pit is the deepest part of the southern working of the quarry, with a further 5 levels above. It was drained by an adit. The quarry was opened 1842 and reached its peak after the construction of a railway link with Clynderwen in the 1870's, with activity falling off by the end of the century. Now overgrown, it is an excellent place for gathering whinberries.
