Great Strike trail marks 120 years since quarry dispute
A historical trail is being unveiled to mark 120 years since one of Britain's longest industrial disputes divided a Welsh town.
The Great Penrhyn Strike started on 22 November, 1900, and lasted three years.
Now, a new self-guided "Slate and Strikes" tour using coded HistoryPoints markers retells the story in Gwynedd.

Some interesting stuff in the article.
