Another example of how well the CZ 24/2 deals with direct sun. The dynamic range of the a7RII is so great!

    X marks the spot



    150 years ago In the afternoon of 30 June 1869, an extremely hot day, two carts set out from Caernarfon. Each was laden with a ton of nitroglycerine, manufactured by Alfred Nobel in Germany and destined for the Glynrhonwy slate quarries, Llanberis. The canisters containing the liquid explosive had been carefully packed into boxes containing sawdust and loaded onto the carts. The boxes were then covered in straw to prevent movement during the journey.

    The cargo exploded at about 5.50pm, as the carts had just passed the railway station goods shed outside Cwm-y-glo. The explosion was probably the loudest man-made explosion which had ever occurred. The press reported that it was felt in Holyhead (37km away as the crow flies).

    Both of the carters were killed, as well as three others. Eight other people were seriously injured, one of whom died six weeks later from his injuries.

    No trace of horses or carts remained at the site, where there were two deep craters approximately 3.3 metres (10ft) deep. Of the people killed immediately, quarryman Robert Morris was the only one whose remains could be identified. Human and animal parts were spread far and wide. Some of the debris was found in the neighbouring village of Brynrefail. The human remains were collected and taken to the nearby Craig y Don tavern to await the inquest, held the following day.

    Many of the injured suffered broken bones. One had his arm amputated. Scarcely a house in Cwm-y-glo escaped damage, including those high on the hill above the main street.

    An X inscribed on a dry stone wall at Clegyr, on the old road from Bryn Bras to Llanberis, is now the only physical indication of where a wheel and the harness of one of the carts were found, more than 800 metres (over half a mile) away. Locals maintain the mark.

    The inquest jury agreed that the carters had not been drunk, although they had stopped at the Blue Bell pub in the village. The verdict was “accidental death”. The reasons for the accident were unknown, nitroglycerine being a relatively new material.

    As a result of the explosion, an Act of Parliament prohibited the import of nitroglycerine and regulated its carriage. As a result, quarries and other industries replaced it with dynamite, a more stable material manufactured for the first time by Alfred Nobel in 1866.
