Slate is Great - Blaenau’s Slate Sculptures
Blaenau slate took 450 million years to form and quarrymen took 150 years to rearrange the mountains. In just twelve months the town has been transformed and reconnected with its heritage with slate sculptures constructed by Howard Bowcott.
First Minister Carwyn Jones will visit today, with the sun shining and work complete. But if you’d like to know how it was done, the film below shows how the sculptures were made.
