Disney Animation Filmed in Blaenau Ffestiniog

Updated: Nov 9, 2023

Today's #TuesdayTrivia has baffled me but as I've taken the information from an official source (imdb) then I can only assume that it's correct.

In 1985 the Disney animation "The Black Cauldron" was released. At the time it was the most expensive animation ever. "And so?" I hear you ask... part of it was "filmed" at Llechwedd Slate Caverns​ I can only assume that this was backdrops for the animation but as I haven't seen the film I don't know.

Have YOU seen the film? Do you know? See more at

Llechwedd Slate Caverns is just one of the many places to visit during your stay at Cadair View Lodge Accommodation Llechwedd is about 15-20 minutes drive away. The site is full of history and now adventure too as this is where Bounce Below can be found and ZipWorld Titan and ZipWorld Caverns.
