The Crown in the Quarry

Myrddin ap Dafydd

This adventure is set in Blaenau Ffestiniog during the Second World War. In Liverpool the falling bombs are destroying homes and families, and children are having to flee to places of safety.

But it's not only children that are being transported to Ffestiniog for their safety. When some of London's treasures are moved for safekeeping to one of the mines, the gates of history are reopened...
