An introduction to the heritage railways of Wales.
Un-earth the story of Welsh Slate and the works’ role in manufacturing slate products that North Wales is rightly famous for. Inigo Jones Slate Works has been established since 1861, crafting products exclusively available onsite and online via their website. Products include Ornamental Welsh Slate for the garden, Architectural items, and Homewares such as Tableware, Clocks, Candleholders, Picture frames, Doorstops and more.
Cwmorthin is a short trek away from the station at Tanygrisiau, but well worth a visit. There are several places to park at Tanygrisiau; there is a large car park as you drive towards the station, a small station car park, one by the popular Café and one at the quarry entrance. What’s more, they are all free. Tanygrisiau is also a station on the Ffestiniog Railway, near Blaenau Ffestiniog.
