You know what? all the grandparents were way tougher than any of us. That's just how they were.
The reality was they didn't know any better. But they did it for you. They did it for you and to make your life better
Yes, it is a beautiful place. And there is of course Snowdon to climb and the glorious green valleys. I wonder how much time the average working man from these places got to appreciate the beauty around them? Not much I bet, until more favourable labour laws came in to force.
And I love slate as a material. It's very tactile. My turntable sits in a honed welsh slate plinth and I love the way its hard,yet somehow soft, cold, yet warm, smoothness feels as I brush it's surface whilst operating the deck.
I've never really gotten on with these because of the shape of my jaw, so these are forming part of my clear out. Great headphones, just not for me.
Come with a hard case, two cables and the 3.5mm to 6.3mm adaptor.
£80 plus postage (collection from B91 is also OK).
Any questions, etc, let me know.
And conversely, today going to Llanberis as a tourist, how much fun the place is and beautiful. I find, as a visitor to the area, even the exposed part mined walls of slate have a visual aesthetic value of their own. Even slag heaps up at Blaenau, have an eerie scenic value - very Doctor Who ( and in fact Doctor who has been made up there ). If you have the luxury of that not being your harsh working life and subjec to the dangers and misery of it, it can actually be good to be in. Ditto that of rolling farmlands of Tuscany, but I guess not so much if you're a labourer stuck in its fields in the heat doing your back in.
