Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Hush Eisteddfod

Hush Eisteddfod lies in the community of Minera in the county of Wrexham. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ25005250. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18067 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early workings to late 19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone.

The Hush Vein can be followed as a deep open-cut that heads north from the Ragman sett towards Top Eisteddfod. Returns are recorded for the Hush Mining Company in 1876-77 (Burt et al 1992), but fieldwork suggests very early workings in this area. The open workings have large shafts on both sides, some close to the Quarry boundary fence. The larger shafts are at SJ25225240 and SJ25135249, being whim shafts on the north-eastern side of the open-cut and the large whim shaft at SJ25165237 on the south-western side of the open-cut.

No evidence.

The larger shafts have whim circles.
