Blaenau Ffestiniog Slate
Two names are synonymous with the production of Welsh blue slate - Cwt y Bugail slate and Blaenau Ffestiniog slate. True Welsh blue slates have been produced from these quarries for many centuries.
At Blaenau, the quality of the rock seams, the craftsmanship of the workers and the knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation combines to produce the finest blue slate roofing tiles available today.
What’s in a name?
Perhaps because of the success of its world-wide distribution, Ffestiniog slate is known under a multitude of different names:
- Ffestiniog Slate
- Welsh blue slate
- Welsh blue-grey slate
As with other Welsh slates, the quality is outstanding with three different thicknesses (or grades) available:
- Capital: 6mm thickness.
- County: 8mm thickness.
- Celtic: 10mm thickness.
The Blaenau Ffestiniog slate quarry is currently closed. Contact our customer support team for the latest Welsh blue slate prices.
We also have a slate presentation put together by our slate specialist. This is definitely worth taking a look at to widen your knowledge, help you to make the important decision and to know what factors to consider when buying slate. Click here to view.
