Quick notes or tips on using the site
random pages have been put together simply to make available some
of the information that's been lying around the house for too
long, together with one or two pieces of more recent work on the
lead mines of the Halkyn Mountain - River Alyn Area of Flintshire
and parts of Denbighshire.
Feel free to
use any of the information within (except the map reproduced with
the consent of the BGS on the North Henblas page) if only
for non-commercial use, but if doing so, kindly credit the author,
photographer or source.

tend to favour the use of mine company names when making
reference to mining areas. This can however confuse those
interested in the underground workings, as many companies worked
varying veins throughout their histories. The names of
lead veins tend to change far less throughout the history
of lead mining and provide a more reliable understanding of the
complex system of veins and workings of the area. Vein names are
therefore used wherever possible on this site, with the notable
exception of Halkyn District United Mines.
