The women and children of Parys Mountain worked on the surface and their job was to break up the large lumps of ore, mined underground, in preparation for the smelting process. In this show, you will meet Elen William, one of Parys Mountain's Copper Ladies. Elen will tell us all about the Copper Industry and how the industrial revolution put Parys Mountain firmly on the industrial map of the world.
