Slate is Great - Blaenau’s Slate Sculptures
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.
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.
