Spring Thing - Easter Events at Blaenau Ffestiniog
Representatives from Llechwedd Slate Quarry will be giving slate splitting demonstrations at Blaenau Station over Easter Weekend, and there'll be footplate rides too...

You can watch the slate splitters in action on Sunday 24th and Monday 25th April between 11.30 and 16.00, and they'll also be happy to answer your questions regarding all aspects of the slate industry that put Blaenau Ffestiniog on the map and was the raison d'etre for the Ffestiniog Railway.

The mines, with the Miners Tramway Tour; the Deep Mine Tour; the Victorian Village; Shop, Cafe and Slate Workshop – will all be open over Easter Weekend should you fancy a visit. See the Llechwedd website for further information.

We will also be offering steam locomotive footplate rides in Blaenau from Sunday 24th - Tuesday 26th April inclusive, so come along and join in the fun!
