Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Long Rake

Long Rake lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ18807110. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18113 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early 18th century-1872)

The Long Rake Vein runs through the Carboniferous Limestone of the Halkyn Mountain.

Working evidence remains in the form of shaft mounds in the area to the north of Peacock Farm (SJ18747105) and open-cuts. Much of the evidence has suffered from land clearance in the 1870s, and workings in the vicinity of Rhes-y-cae Primary School have been landscaped for school use. The Engine Shaft stands to the North-east of Peacock Farm, possibly at SJ18837117. A line of shafts run westwards towards the road junction at SJ18207110. The sett was worked in the early 18th century by the Quaker Company and intensive mining continued to the 19th century.
