Hi

Does anybody live near the memorial to the above in Pontybream? If so any chance you could take me a couple of decent sharp photos of the two slate plaques which are there. They are made of Aberllefenni Slate and I thought they would be good illustration for my book since they are mining related.

Thanks

Jon

Sorry should have said, absolutely no rush. Sometime in the next 12 months is fine. IP: 86.165.128.188
