Large shafts occur in the Garreg-Boeth Woods and Big Wood at SJ18656760 and continue eastwards to SJ19156755 on the Garreg-Boeth vein. The Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein ran east to west across these setts and the North Hendre Vein cut north to south. Smith (1921) refers to seven shafts along the Tyddyn-y-barcud Vein as Robert's, Pritchard's, Eyton's, Willianson's, Marquis, Tyddyn-y-barcud and Ddol, being those that can be traced through the woodland.
