Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Bodidris lies in the community of Llandegla in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ20905390. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18010 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (Late 19th century)

The Mine worked the southernmost part of a string off the Maes-y-pwll Vein through Carboniferous Limestone overlying shales.

The opencuts and shaft mounds on the nearby limestone slopes may relate to Alltgymbyd. Two old shafts were worked to the north-east of Bod Idris Hall at SJ20805300 and SJ21105405 in fields to the north of the site marked as an old limekiln and quarry at SJ20805370. Two shafts remain at SJ20505425 and to the east of it SJ21105410. The Bodidris Mining Company, later working as Creigiog was formed with considerable investment for speculative mining.
