  • The visit to the Museum is in two parts: a demonstration of work on the slate, and a permanent exhibition. The demonstration is made by one of the last splitters of slates, working by hand. Nightingale (that's his nickname) is a man nice, teacher and very funny, both passionate and exciting. The expo is a little less interesting, but she knows show us the hard work of shale miners.
