Blaenau Ffestiniog is a town in Gwynedd, North Wales. The town was once the capital of the slate industry in Wales. At the beginning of the 19th century, Ffestiniog was a ‘small, poor village’ with a few isolated farmsteads, and sheep were as important as slate to the early pioneers. Slate eventually became the basis of the wealth in Snowdonia and Blaenau Ffestiniog became the centre of the industry. The industry prospered and Blaenau Ffestiniog became the “town that roofed the world”, and when entering the town through the usual grey damp mist via the Crimea Pass you could be forgiven for thinking that this was the town that sits on the roof of the world. The town is set in an elevated natural bowl between the Manod and Moelwyn Mountains of Snowdonia. Despite being geographically in the centre of the Snowdonia National Park, the grey slate waste tips that surround the town prevented it from being officially included in the national park. Today slate extraction employs only a fraction of its former labour force, (4000 men in the 1880’s), but the town has to some extent reinvented itself as a tourist destination with two quarries offering trips into the massive underground caverns built by the slate workers.
Culturally you are in the heart of “Fortress Gwynedd” one of the last bastions of defence for the Welsh Language. The defence of the language is of supreme importance to many of the population and Welsh is naturally used as the first language. Being located close to the mountains, lakes and forests of the Snowdonia National Park, Blaenau Ffestiniog is a convenient base for all kinds of outdoor sports and activity holidays, including Mountain Biking, Climbing, Walking, Canoeing. The narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway links Blaenau Ffestiniog with Porthmadog on the coast. The Ffestiniog Railway (originally horse drawn) opened for freight traffic in 1836 and transported the slate from source at Blaenau Ffestiniog to harbour via a 21km journey through meadows, woodlands, lakes and waterfalls within what is now the Snowdonia National Park. The ride is spectacular as the line twists and turns its way through the countryside.
The Conwy Valley Railway at 27 miles long offers one of the most beautiful rail experiences in Britain. It was constructed in 1879 and links Blaenau Ffestiniog with the north Wales coastal resorts. Part of the National Rail Network, it takes you via a 3 mile ( 5km ) tunnel under the Crimea Pass, alongside the banks of the turbulent river Lledr, down to the river Conwy, one of the great rivers of Wales. A breathtaking range of scenery unfolds before your eyes, from majestic crags and pastoral delights of the upper valleys to the historic castles of Dolwyddelan and Conwy, through an estuary rich in wildlife, You glimpse fairytale landscapes, ancient quarries and tracks, forests and the high peaks of Snowdonia before eventually reaching Llandudno the Queen of the Welsh resorts. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say. A writer from the Boston Globe states: “Blaenau Ffestiniog is smack in the middle of the gorgeous Snowdonia National Park, and yet one of the ugliest spots you’ll find in north Wales. The air itself seems permeated with a dark gray cast…. The slate history of the town is everywhere. Stone houses are roofed in slate, stone steps leading through town are slate, and shops feature slate products in their windows. But most striking is the dead landscape that surrounds the town.
