Treforus

Treforus

Treforus is an unfinished and abandoned village in Cwm Ystradllyn. It was begin in the 1850s to accomodate the workforce of the Gorseddau Quarry – a pathetic excuse for slate but nonetheless investors stumped up a massive amount of cash which was promtly squandered on projects like the satellite mill at Ynys y Pandy and Treforus.

I didn’t get long up here, less than half an hour, but managed to squeeze off a few interesting shots in that time. Here are a couple from the LX5. Film shots to follow.
