Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Dyserth lies in the community of Dyserth in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ05707950. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18063 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (1869-70)

Carboniferous Limestone and Coal Measures.

The workings to the north of the waterfall are masked by the dense undergrowth of the hill-slopes that are circumvented by Carreg Heilyn Lane. South of Dyserth Waterfall, Ash Tree Shaft lies in the fields to the west of housing at SJ05607920. The more western workings ran into coal measures (Smith 1921). Although the returns were only made for one year, evidence suggests a longer period of operation. The mine may have been worked later by Talargoch Company.

The Mineral Railway served the sett.
