Trelogan Afongoch

Trelogan Afongoch lies in the community of Llanasa in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ11508030. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18235 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Lead/Silver (19th century)

Carboniferous Limestone with chert beds.

The Afongoch Mine had trials in the fields immediately to the east of the road from Llanasa to Four Crosses as early as 1846, with little success. The shafts that lie in the area of Afongoch Crossroads at SJ11538028, SJ11578031, SJ11758030, and SJ11918033 being to the north of the Afongoch Inn were probably worked by the Trelogan Group.
