Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Maenbras (also known as Prince Patrick West) lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ18707220. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 103407 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone.

The Maenbras Mine and later the Prince Patrick West worked the area to the west of Prince Patrick Mine on the site of the now Pant-y-pwll Quarry. The workings are lost to quarrying, but an area of grassed-over mounds remain to the west of the quarry to the south of Pant-y-groes (SJ18407265) and south of the Pentre Halkyn to Babell Road. The largest shafts are visible in a long line running from north to south, from the road, following the public footpath towards Pwll-melyn.
