The Town That Roofed The World
The Town That Roofed The World is a project focussing on Blaenau Ffestiniog, a historical slate mining town in Gwynedd, North Wales. This town was once responsible for producing incredible amounts of slate to be transported and used around the world, hence the affectionate title the town has rightly earned. Now, the town is known for an entirely new industry; tourism. The remnants of Blaenau Ffestiniog’s slate mining industry now not only serve as monuments to the town’s proud past, but also to its future. Visitors to the town are able to explore the rich history it holds through activities such as Bounce Below, a trampoline system within the mines and caves, and the longest zip wire in Europe.
