Disused incline at Tanygrisiau
Disused incline at Tanygrisiau
Photograhped from a train on the Festiniog Railway. This gravity worked incline provided access to a quarry at the top and is long disused. The top section is tunnelled through the rock. The incline is also transected part of the way up by a newer access road. I have walked up this incline and it was heavy going.
