PostSubject: Hendre spar   Wed 02 Feb 2011, 1:13 pm

Had the good fortune to be taken around hendre spar mine on sunday. Many thanks to the two gentlemen who took me round, who were very kind to me bearing in mind it was just my second time underground and I was feeling very poorly!

having looked on the historic mapping hosted by peoples collection wales @ http://beta.peoplescollectionwales.co.uk/, there are a number of lead shafts in the same area. What is known about these?

It's difficult to say what is known about these in a nutshell, but there are already some good sources of information. On the Internet you could you could try:

http://sites.google.com/site/flintshireleadmining/map--main-veins-of-halkyn-mountain
http://www.cpat.org.uk/projects/longer/mines/minesidx.htm
http://www.hendrecoed.org.uk/
..and of course this website...

In terms of books you could source copies of the very detailed BGS Memoirs of the area (B.Smith / A Strahan), JR Foster Smith's non-Ferrous Mines of Flintshire, or CJ Williams Lead Mines of the Alyn Valley.

Of course you could also join a caving club and get involved, there's a few clubs who are active in the area.
