World heritage bid for north Wales slate industry


A bid is being made for the slate industry of north Wales to be given world heritage status.

Supporters plan to celebrate the way Welsh slate has influenced the landscape of countries around the world.

It would also help to improve the economy of Gwynedd by raising the area's profile.

The other world heritage sites in Wales are the castles of King Edward I, the industrial landscape of Blaenavon in Torfaen, and the aqueduct at Pontcysyllte near Llangollen, Denbighshire.
