As promised I’ve put together this follow up entry for those who enjoyed our visit to Penwyllt quarry a couple of weeks ago and wanted to see a little more of what remains today. The site is, not unsurprisingly, rather large and we only managed a brief look around some of the structures still present. I’m sure a more thorough investigation would likely reveal yet more of the history surrounding this place but for now here are a couple of my favourite shots from the day along with a little of their story.
As you can probably imagine I’ve barely touched on the history of Penwyllt here, partly down to not wanting to bore the pants off everyone and partly because I simply haven’t been able to find a great deal of information on the internet. There are plenty of current photos around but nothing much from any earlier. Needless to say I shall be digging a little deeper over the winter to see what else I can unearth.
