Quarry Walk

Explore the Dinorwig quarries

Blue Peris was once the house in which the manager of the Dinorwig quarries lived. This huge complex of slate quarries once constituted one of the biggest man made holes in the world, employing over 3,000 quarry workers. Closed in 1969 it remains a truly awe inspiring landscape, steeped in history, rich in industrial archaeology, and of direct relevance to local culture.
