Please forgive me for being so late in just saying "thank
you". I'm pretty new to this - but I wanted to make sure I
thanked you for your reply. This information is very much a
good start for me. I am also interested in the history of
the area - particularly what working conditions etc. were at
the time my great grandfather worked in the slate mines.
Just reading all the available information will keep me busy
for quite some time. Thank you so much, again!
