quarry Foel Grochan Slate Quarry, Aberllefenni. The waste tips and abandoned buildings are typical of the area.
forest road This is the single track road through the Dyfi Forest linking Aberllefenni with Aberangell. For many years it was a very rough private road, used only by the Forestry Commission and occasional car rallies, and I don't know when someone had the great idea of improving it and making it available for public use. Today it forms a spectacular route for light traffic (heavy vehicles and caravans are prohibited), with some superb views. In the far distance in this shot you can just make out the peaks of the Cader Idris range.
