Today, me and my dad went for a lovely trip to the Slate Museum in Llanberis! We only live five minutes away from it, and it's somewhere we never think of visiting due to the fact it's SO CLOSE!
I've been there a couple of times during my childhood, but re-visiting somewhere when you're a bit more grown up is always nice!
I had been looking forward to visit the old quarry hospital but unfortunately it was closed today (sad times indeed!) They have all types of extremely old medical instruments they used on the quarry men on show, plus you get to see what the hospital looked like a hundred years ago! It's extremely fascinating (although I can't stand anything medical or clinical in any way!)
Anyway, we had a lovely afternoon!
Admission to the Slate Museum is free although parking does cost £4! We went for the cheaper option by parking in the village and walked to the museum!
Have you ever been there?
It's extremely strange to think this was a working slate quarry a hundred years ago! This unfortunately was the life of so many men in the area, I know I would've absolutely hated it! Despite this, what they did was highly skilful and required a lot of dedication!
