Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Coed-y-fedw lies in the community of Llanferres in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ19906170. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18050 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (1881-1884)

Cefn-y-fedw Sandstone.

The main mine area remains within Cefn-y-fedw wood and was operated by the Coedyfedw and Pantybuarth Company in the late 19th century. Several shafts can be identified at random intervals in the woodland surrounding the wheelpit and shaft at SJ19856166. Spreads of spoil and a little ash slag cover the area.

No evidence.

Remains of a stone structure some 5 x 4m appear only just above the ground level now apart from the north wall which survives to 2m with no features, built on top of a natural bank. The evidence of slag in the waste would suggest engine power and there are no watercourses discernable. To the west of it, a stone-built wheelpit survives to its likely former height of approx 2m with a shaft to the west if it.

No evidence.
