Penrhyn Quarry secures World Heritage Status

Posted: 29.07.21 / in North Wales

We are super excited about our neighbours at Penrhyn Quarry securing (after 15 years of preparation work) Unesco World Heritage Site status!

The new World Heritage Site is a serial of sites including spectacular quarry landscapes such as Penryhn Quarry , the Nantile Valley and Ffestiniog. It also includes Penrhyn Castle and the famous Ffestiniog and Talyllyn Railways, built to transport the slate from the quarry to markets around the world.

We have always known this area of North Wales is special, and we are pleased that the spotlight is certainly shining on this truly remarkable location.

If you fancy exploring this breathtaking part of North Wales why not book a short stay in one of our luxury pods or lodges (Click here) Or day-trippers could book into the Quarry Bar & Grill. Ogwen Bank Caravan & Lodge Park has worked hard to complement our natural surroundings and even has original artefacts from the Quarry. We are so lucky to have the Penrhyn Quarry as our backdrop!
