Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Lixwm lies in the community of Ysceifiog in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ17307140. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18108 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early 18th century-1871)

Carboniferous Limestone.

In 1848 the Caelanycraig Mine appears to have beeen working in close proximity to the Lixwm Mine workings on a north-south lode. Both sites lie to the east of the village of Lixwm. Probable mine tracks lead uphill from the village towards three private dwellings and a field of overgrown mounds at SJ17307100. To the east of the road running up to Walwen, grassed-over mounds can be seen in the fields that are not built on. A single shaft is located at SJ17307240 to the north of Berthen Farm. The workings were probably trials on the Pant-y-nef cross-course Vein.
