Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Hendre South and West

Hendre South and West lies in the community of Cilcain in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ18806750. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18100 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone.

Returns were made for the South Hendre Mining Co for 1869-71 and the West Hendre Mining Co for 1902-1904. Workings remain as shafts and mounds to the south of the Hendre Valley and the A541 Road. The first edition OS map, surveyed in 1869 and 1871, names the several shafts around SJ18656760 as Efail Parcy Lead Mine. Eastwards the shaft at SJ19156755 appears as a large whim shaft. The Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein ran east to west across these setts and the North Hendre Vein cut north to south. Smith (1921) refers to seven shafts along the Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein, Robert's, Pritchard's, Eyton's, Willianson's, Marquis, Tyddyn-y-barcud and Ddol, being those that can be traced through the woodland.
