About a mile down a narrow, wooded path lies Buckley - an old abandoned slate quarry, now surrounded by woodland and slag heaps. Suddenly I come across two battered trucks, parked next to each other but facing opposite directions so that the drivers can talk to each other. The engines are idling, and country music leaks out of the radio. I keep my eyes on the path. Whatever they're doing, it's none of my business.
