Greetings from Thomas Lippiard!

Delta Slate and Welsh History
2
Boat Slate Tools
In the 1840s the Welsh sailed across the
Atlantic Ocean to Delta. The Welsh heard that
there was good slate in that area so since they
already knew how to mine and split slate they
decided to settle there in Delta.

The Welsh were happy in Delta. Back in Wales they
were under the rule of Queen Victoria, the queen
of England. She didnt let them speak their own
Welsh language. In some parts of the small
country, they werent even aloud to mine their
own slate! In Delta, they were free to speak
their own language and mine slate wherever and
whenever they wanted.
Fast Fact The Welsh built amazing castles to
protect themselves from armies such as Queen
Victorias.
You Welsh will follow my orders!!

For some reason the Welsh must have still honored
Queen Victoria in a way because they built a type
of house and named it after her. They called that
type of house a Victorian.

But some Welsh lived in small cottages that could
make a home for six to ten people.

Slate from quarry
Slate quarries can be all different sizes. This
particular quarry has water pumped through it so
that it makes a river going in between the high
walls of slate. Once in a while people would jump
off the walls of slate into the water and
sometimes even die.

There are many different tools for mining and
splitting slate. You use a special type of chisel
for splitting slate. You use the back of a slate
hammer to make holes in the slate so you can put
nails in the holes to make a slate roof. Back
then in the 1800s people used hand-held tools.
Now people use machinery. There is also a special
tool used for cutting straight edges on the slate
called a trimmer.
