Cwm Mawr No. 2
|Alternative name||Cwm Mawr South ? [Wilkinson 2003: 14749]
Cwm Bychan ?
|Location||SH632317 (Area map showing location.)|
|Geology||see Cwm Mawr No. 1|
|Owner||Samuel Griffith 1890–1898|
|Production and Employment||
|Transport||Presumed cartage to Llanbedr station. There are various tracks assciated with the workings including one that leaves the track to the farm at SH63173158 and rejoins it at SH63323183.|
|Remains||An extensive area of surface workings, levels and tips and a loading bank (none of which are shown on Down’s plan) between the track and the river south of Cwm Mawr farm. Loading banks beside track to farm at SH632316. There are three delapidated buildings which may be associated with the workings. (March 2005)|
Down [1980: 36] comments that the location is uncertain and suggests that it may have been “the two small workings beside the track leading to Cwm Mawr farm”. However, these appear to be associated with the main area of workings to their east.
Wilkinson [2003: 14749] records Cwm Mawr South at a location of SH633316. The proximity of this location and the fact of Samuel Griffith being the Operator and Agent suggests that it is the same mine.
The recorded output is very low considering the extent of the workings.
Described as “idle” in 1923 [Dewey & Dines 1923: 65].
