Edward Cropper's memorial at Rosebush
Edward Cropper's memorial at Rosebush
It was Edward Cropper who, having purchased the Rosebush slate quarry in 1869, was subsequently responsible for the construction of a branch railway from Clynderwen to Maenclochog and Rosebush for the purpose of taking the slates out. His enterprise brought temporary prosperity to the area and the memorial was placed here beside the station and the Prescelly Hotel (now Tafarn Sinc, seen in the background).
