Merionethshire, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Craig Ddu Quarry, Taid John Rowlands in the 1930's

Merionethshire, Blaenau Ffestiniog, slate workers at Craig Ddu Quarry, Roy's grandfater - John Rowlands - is in the back row extreme right in the 1930's

The images on this page (and page 3 and 4) are kindly shared with us from the collection of Ann and Roy Rowlands in Australia. Roy Rowlands was - proudly - born in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The history and prosperity of Blaenau Ffestiniog and the surrounding towns and villages are closely linked with the slate industry - even to this day. Slate mining was an often cruel but always hard way to earn a living, and many proud, strong, slate miners lost their lives in the pursuit of earning millions of pounds for the slate barons.
