Clwyd Metal Mines Survey


Pantypwlldwr (also known as Rowley's Rake) lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ19807220. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18157 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early 17th century-1854)

Carboniferous Limestone.

A lease for the sett was granted to Rowley by the Grosvenors as early as 1622. The land was later leased and worked by the Quaker Company prior to 1720. By 1721, they are recorded as sinking a windshaft, and by 1730, a Newcomen engine was on the sett (Bevan-Evans). The very rich mine worked the Pant Vein, which ran in an east-west direction. Part of the sett has already been lost to quarrying. The remaining area consists of large shafts and spoil with no related structures, given over to pasture and partly enclosed as farmland.
