Diffwys 1984

Most of these photos were taken during a Plas Tan y Bwlch Industrial Archaeology course looking at Diffwys. It was the second year looking at Diffwys "the mother quarry" and my own particular study was the Floor 0 Mill. I have also included some older shots rather than clutter up the "Archive"
