Investigators Sue Fielding and Spencer Smith have been undertaking survey work at the Rosebush and Bellstone Slate quarries, near the village of Rosebush, Pembrokeshire. Working in conjunction with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the quarry owner, the surviving buildings and structures are being recorded in order to monitor their condition. As well as providing an important resource for the National Park staff to aid them in the conservation of the site, the work will also feature in a book on the Archaeology of the Slate Industry of Wales being produced by the Royal Commission.
