Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Dyserth Castle

Dyserth Castle lies in the community of Dyserth in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ06017990. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18064 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (1882-1885)

Carboniferous Limestone.

The Dyserth Castle (1882-5) and Gop (1881-5) Mine workings remain as earthworks in dense undergrowth to the east of the area that has been quarried at SJ06007980. The site lies to the east of the Mineral Railway and is cut to the south by the 1844 leat that served the Talargoch Mines (102605).

The Mineral Railway runs the western perimeter of the sett. It now forms part of a public footpath.

The 1844 leat that served the Talargoch Mines (102605) cuts to the south of Dyserth Castle. It survives in an excellent state of preservation in the undergrowth at SJ6057980, but has been destroyed by later quarrying, as has most of the mining evidence in this area.
