PREFACE. CONCERNING the purpose and scope of this little book I have but to repeat what I have said in the prefaces to my other works of the same nature—A Book of the West, A Book of Dartmoor, A Book of Brittany—that it is not intended as a Guide, but merely as an introduction to North Wales, for the use of intending visitors, that they may know something of the history of that delightful.

This book is a fantastic historic account of the quarries of Gwynedd, including Penrhyn, Dinorwic, Nantlle and Blaenau Ffestiniog. Everything that can be attributed to the quarries is given, such as how the railway lines of the North and the port on the Afon Menai managed to open up industrialisation in Wales/5(8). The Welsh Limestone Company is a specialist natural stone manufacturer with over 20 years experience in the industry. We pride ourselves on the heritage, history, and geology of Welsh Limestone: An enviable resource that has shaped both the history and landscape of Wales.
