  What a handsome rock. I've only seen it used for roofing here in these parts, and very rarely at that.

  Slate is a very durable material; when used for roofing it can last for a couple of hundred years.

  Yep! A lot of the slates on Gartloch's roof are original... And Welsh slate is even more hardcore I'm told.

  What did this gear wind?

  It was used to haul the slate wagons up/down from the quarry level to the narrow gauge lines, which are about 50feet below.
