Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Pentre Halkyn

Pentre Halkyn lies in the community of Halkyn in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ20007230. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18171 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (1892-1901)

Carboniferous Limestone with chert beds.

Shafts and spoil heaps remain in an area so full of workings that it is impossible to determine the extent of each individual mine. A single shaft mound remains to the south-west of the Springfield Hotel at SJ20407220, is probably the easternmost shaft on an east-west vein from Halkyn Hall. Some of the 19th century workings to the south of the Old George and Dragon Hotel and Salem Chapel have been obliterated by housing. To the west of the housing lines of shaft mounds continue to run westwards towards the large quarries. The mine was drained by the Milwr Tunnel.
