This book provides a fascinating history of slate quarrying at Corris from its beginning in Tudor times to the twentieth century.

From the rear side cover: The new information in this fresh edition takes forward and updates the sadly no longer ongoing story of this most interesting and innovative of Welsh slate regions. It escaped tile worst of the disputes and confrontations so endemic elsewhere, but its men faced tile same dangers and their families the same hardships as in the better-known slate districts. Although Corrls' outputs were never great and its years of real prosperity few, it was for five hundred years and more a fascinating microcosm of the industry and indeed of the wider world.

Please note there is an old price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover
