Just spotted that there are two listings for this quarry.
One is 'Prince of Wales Slate Quarry', the other being 'Prince of Wales (Cornwall) Slate Quarry.

Can I suggest that the two are amalgamated under one name.

Hi both

The admin move tools for photos are - temporarily - offline as they're having a strop with the new album page format Sad I'll get them sorted ASAP then the photos can be moved across.

The reason I opened the album with Cornwall in the title was to avoid confussion with the quarry at the end of the Gorseddau Tramway in Wales which bears the same name and is also slate.
