Silver Rake

Silver Rake lies in the community of Brynford in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ18107300. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18197 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (Early 18th century-1871)

Carboniferous Limestone.

Early 18th century workings on the Silver Rake were carried out by the Quaker Company. The more recent 19th century workings have obliterated the earlier workings and remain as grassed-over shaft and spoil heaps running on an east to west vein and the opencut workings on its outcrops, in the area between Gelli Fowler Farm and Waenbrodlas.
