Some Exciting News;
Wales Slate: local pride… worldwide reach…
With a little over a week since UNESCO World Heritage Committee made their announcement; designating the Slate Landscape of Northwest Wales as a World Heritage Site! …We are still smiling here!
Da iawn – Well done.
The Status allows us to celebrate our contribution to the world and to recognise the important role slate continues to have in developing our communities for the future.
The key driver for the nomination is to increase pride in our slate communities, regenerate our slate landscape from an economic and social perspective and to promote and celebrate the rich Welsh culture of our slate valleys.

Inigo Jones is already celebrating 160 glorious years in business this year and this news comes as a delightful bonus.
Open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm, tours commence daily. This is what one recent visitor to Inigo Jones Slate Works had to say:
“Interesting shop and reasonable prices (compared to other shops around North Snowdonia) for both slate products but also other Welsh artifacts.
The self-guided tour around the working slate factory is also both fascinating, interactive and hands-on for us adults and our kids alike.
The proprietors of the shop are super helpful and friendly.
We had already visited the National Slate Museum so had some background about the slate mining and quarrying history. In one sense, what we discovered here is a continuing discovery of Wales’ slate industry both past and present.
Recommended, especially now that Wales’ slate heritage has been formally recognised by UNESCO.”
