Westminster Castell Engine Shaft

Westminster Castell Engine Shaft lies in the community of Llanarmon-yn-ial in the county of Denbighshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ2023657415. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18228 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead (19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone.

The Cornish Pumping Engine at Castell Engine Shaft apparently also served Shaft Newydd, which was a whim shaft. Little evidence remains to identify the Castell Engine site at SJ20205740 or Shaft Newydd to the west of it. The site is farmed at Castell Farm and the engine house site remains as a small area of waste on the west side of the road as it runs north to Eryrys.

No evidence.

A Cornish pumping engine was recorded at Castell Shaft and a whim at Shaft Newydd (CRO AB/40).

No evidence.
