In the abandoned Dinorwic slate quarry
Wales

Once one of the biggest slate quarries in the world but all that remains today is an adventure playground for climbers and really, you are not even oficially allowed to go there at all.

In one of those holes scenes for "Clash of the Titans" was filmed.
