The ERA slate quarry lay in the Glesyrch valley, behind the village.
The Centre for Alternative Technology lies about a mile south of the village.
Esgairgeiliog was a station on the narrow-gauge Corris Railway, although prospective passengers had to cross the river into Merionethshire (southern Gwynedd today) to catch the train. A steeply-graded branch line crossed the river and led to the ERA quarry, carrying slate to Machynlleth for transshipment.
The station has recently[when?] been structurally and cosmetically restored as the Corris Railway is being reinstated back to Esgairgeiliog.
