About

This post-industrial landscape holds a special place in the hearts of the people who live here and the cultural and social influence is still significant today. The site tells the story of evolution from an agricultural society to an area where industry dominated the landscape; where slate quarries, towns and villages appeared, and transport links carved their way through Snowdonia to ports that exported slate to global markets.

The Slate Landscape of Northwest Wales was inscribed onto the World Heritage List in 2021 at the 44th Session of the World Heritage Committee in Fuzhou, China
