Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Hersedd lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ18706910. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18102 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (1889-1893)

Carboniferous Limestone.

Hersedd lies on the western end of the vein that runs eastwards to the Bryngwiog Sett. The fields surrounding the farmhouse (SJ18736930) consist of numerous shaft and spoil heaps, but with no discernible structures. The main working and dressing areas were probably to the north of the farm. Large shafts were recorded at SJ18826917, SJ18806915, SJ18966915, SJ18836904 and SJ18896900. Workings on the Fron Vein to the south of Hersedd Farm probably belong to the Pen Bronwiski sett (103424).
