Vivian Hughes (1939-2014) talks to Lynn Francis about his family home at the Quarry Hospital in Llanberis, North Wales.

His father, Griffith Samuel Hughes, worked as a medical officer from 1909-1962, looking after the health of some 3,000 quarrymen.

The Dinorwic quarry was closed in 1969 and – thanks to funding from the National Lottery – the site subsequently became the National Slate Museum.

This video – which runs for over two hours – also includes archive footage and information about the quarry and the site from many other sources.
