Iron/manganese (1880-1884)

Carboniferous Limestone basement beds

Manganese was found in association with haematite in this area to the south-west of Abergele and worked from 1880-1884. The 19th century returns for the ores indicate intense activity for these few years. No certain evidence of workings remain in the vicinity.

Ore was transported by road to Pensarn Station from where it was taken to Mostyn Ironworks.
