Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Mostyn (also known as Hafod) lies in the community of Whitford in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ12907940. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18133 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (Early 19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone.

The 19th century returns reference the site in close proximity to Brindigrif Mine (Burt et al 1992) and the sett seems to have explored the Bryn Vein and the Butcher Vein at an earlier period. Shafts remain evident on the farmlands of Bryndigrif (SJ12607940) to the north following an east to west vein, which continues through the woodland. To the extreme east, a single shaft remains near Nant Evan at SJ13857920. The adit level was unlocated, but was apparently driven from the South-east of Pentre-ffynnon Farm. Although little evidence remains at the given NGR in Burt et al (1992), the workings of Bryndigrif concur with this short-worked sett.
