Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Nantypetre (also known as Llangynhafal) lies in the community of Llangynhafal in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ13706300. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18143 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Barytes (1890-92)

Wenlock shales deposited against Carboniferous Limestone.

Documentary evidence refers to barytes being obtained from a north to south fault, although no evidence remains at this NGR given in Burt et al (1992). Evidence of the old shafts and levels do appear on the south-western and south-eastern slopes of Moel Dywyll within the Moel Famau Country Park. The levels at SJ15426354, SJ15306350 and the workings that continue downhill and westwards along with the shaft at SJ15126343 could belong to Nantypetre. An area to the north-east of Fron Haul has been later quarried out (SJ14306370).
