Hendrecoed North Wales Mining History

The Hendrecoed north Wales mining history website is a project to document and make public some aspects of the mining history and associated industrial archaeology of north Wales.

Merioneth Manganese

The manganese mines of the former county of Merionethshire.

Manganese was mined in Merionethshire from the early 19th century for approximately 100 years. This website contains details of the mines, including plans and photographs, plus information about the geology, mining history and methods, the manganese trade, uses of manganese and a comprehensive bibliography. A search facility is included which allows searching for mines near specific grid references or named places.

The mines and quarries of north Wales

The late Jeremy Wilkinson researched bibliographical references to over four and a half thousand mines in the pre-1974 north Wales counties of Angelsey, Caernarvonshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Merioneth.

The website provides an on-line searchable version of the Gazetteer and Bibliography.
