W. J. Roberts worked in the slate quarry between 1920 and 1954 (with the exception of the war years of 1939-45), the memories of which he documented in two large volumes of manuscript, including accounts both in Welsh and English, in addition to various sketches illustrating machinery, process and quarry buildings.
