The ruined village that we saw had about 9 families living there. This particular quarry was actually a fairly unsuccessful venture. Some of the biggest slate mines employed hundreds of men and ran for decades, only closing early in the second half of the 20th century. It was a very hard life though and must have been incredibly bleak in the winter.
