Default Slate, slate more slate & a limpet 08/10 - 16-08-2010, 16:12

Dinoriwc slate quarry seems to be the in place at the moment with quite a few NWEX members posting reports on this amazing place. If you get the chance to see this incredible excavation don't hesitate, It's AWESOME !!!!!

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time, we spent 6 hours scrambling & climbing up & down the level's before calling it quits & trudging back to the car vowing to return.

Highlight of the day was Manx doing his limpet impression see video here.

Visited with Morrisey, Copy cat, Manxy & ex NWEX member Sir spoilt brat of Bowden.
