Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Coed Mawr

Coed Mawr (also known as Nant-y-Ffrith) lies in the community of Llanfynydd in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ26505480. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 104438 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (19th century)

Cefn-y-fedw Sandstone overlying Carboniferous Limestone.

The 1st edition OS map of 1871 shows four shafts to the south-east of the county boundary and west of Waen Farm (SJ26905390). The 2nd edition map shows old levels on the slopes of the Nant-y-ffrith Woods to the north-east of Gorse (SJ26405370), which appears to be the centre of the mining activity. To the north of the road from Bwlchgwyn to Glascoed old workings may have been lost in the area now quarried out. To the south of this road shaft mounds can be located in the fields to the west of Waen Farm and to the east and south of Gorse. The veins are marked on the Brenton Symons Map of 1865, but little evidence remains.
