The Blondin Restaurant name celebrates the development of innovative equipment in Welsh slate quarrying history and the links to today’s Velocity 2 adventure at Penrhyn Quarry. ‘The Blondin’ was a type of aerial ropeway developed to transport slate in open quarries in North Wales, named after the 18th century tightrope walker Charles Blondin. Examples of these were used throughout Penrhyn Quarry with the nickname of ‘Jerry Ms’.
