SJ 231 538
On the A525 Ruthin to Wrexham Road, Coming from Wrexham, go past the Four Crosses pub at the Bwlchgwyn crossroads, past the fish farm and park at the side of the road where a public footpath crosses the road a couple hundred feet further on.
Take the public footpath on the right which passes through a private woodland until you “pop out” of the wood and onto rough land. Follow the woodland fence boundary on your right for about ½ mile and you will see a “chimney” off and upwards to the left. The shaft entrance is there.
(Walking across this ground is arduous)
Wooden planks cover the shaft entrance and can easily be moved. Access permission is not known.
Electron ladder with short rope & slings to secure
Marked as “lead mine” on the O/S map. Shaft entrance of around 20-30feet. Nothing more is known
A reconsti.tuted (stupid forum word filter) chimney stands alone around the top of Moel Garegog as a monument to this mine.
Wooden planks cover a shaft entrance a few feet away which reveal a dry floor and a fixed ladder which is around 10-15 feet short of the top of the shaft.
Access would be simple with an electron ladder roped around the chimney.
An adit can be seen running off at the base but no exploration has been undertaken.
Nothing else is known about this mine.
Everything remains unexplored
