Clwyd Metal Mines Survey

Pool Park Mary Ann

Pool Park Mary Ann (also known as Kyrke's shaft) lies in the community of Minera in the county of Wrexham. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ25405040. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18179 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (1860-1881)

Cefn-y-fedw Sandstone overlying Carboniferous Limestone.

The shaft was probably commonly named after Richard Kyrke, the Chief Mine Agent from 1862-1866 for Pool Park. The site remains as an area of large spoil heaps and one deep filled shaft, which is Engine Shaft.

No evidence

The engine house has been destroyed to foundation level, as has the boiler house to the south-west side of it. The house evidently was slate roofed and probably housed a horizontal engine. On the south -east side of the shaft, a small building remains at foundation level, with one wall showing. To the north of this are the remains of a partial whim circle with the pivot stone surrounds in situ, which rarely occurs.

No evidence.

Other features
Alongside the probable entrance track, on the north side of the mine, are the remains of a storage building or mine office.
