Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Halkyn Hall

Halkyn Hall lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ20907050. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 103080 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early 18th century-1889)

Carboniferous Limestone with chert beds.

The sett worked strings of the Old Rake from an earlier date to the returns evidence (Burt 1992). Much of the workings, apart from shaft and spoil mounds, has been lost in the Derelict Land Reclaimation Scheme proposed in the 1970s by Clwyd County Council in conjunction with Wimpey Asphalt Quarries. A capped shaft at SJ20837053 appears to have been the Engine Shaft.

No evidence.

A chimney base remains on the roadside and the likely stone engine house walls area converted for a garage alongside in close proximity to the shaft at SJ20837053. The sett was drained by the sea-level tunnel in the 20th century.

No evidence.
