Penrhyn Heather Blue slate, also known as Bangor Blue and Penrhyn Purple, is produced from a fine-grained slate deposit, laid down over 500 million years ago in the Cambrian period.
Penrhyn Quarry in the heart of Snowdonia is one of the largest slate quarries in the world, and has been in commercial production for over seven centuries. The properties of the Penrhyn slate allow it to be split into thin sheets but still retain its strength and unparalleled durability.
County Grade is the main production thickness at Penrhyn Welsh Slate at 7 mm thick.
The surface texture is similar to the Capital Grade, but the slightly thicker leading edge gives more focus to the slate on the roof. Traditionally sold in the Midlands and North West of England it is now sold widely across the World.
