Visit Minera -We are opening up the Visitor Centre at Minera Lead Mines This Summer and autumn 2018

Thanks to funding from a National Lottery grant we will re-open Minera Lead Mines near Wrexham as an exciting visitor attraction and outdoor events space. An exciting programme of activities for people of all ages and abilities will be run throughout the summer and autumn 2018. There are events for all the family every Wednesday and Thursday this Summer.  See what’s going on here.

The lead mines offers a fascinating glimpse into the industrial past of the beautiful Clywedog Valley and visitors can explore the country park seeing  remains of the lead processing areas from the 18th and 19th centuries , the restored beam engine house, winding engine and boiler houses. There is also a visitor centre that tells the story of the site plus a country park covering 53 acres of grassland, wooded areas and archaeological sites.

Supported through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and working in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council we received a grant to develop, try out and test sustainable ways to manage the Minera Lead Mines Visitor Centre so that it can open to the public all year round.

The programme will also provide opportunities for people to say what they would like to see at the site in the future and how that can be provided sustainably.


Opening hours:

  • Monday-Friday 10am to 4pm
  • Saturday 10am to 5pm
  • Sunday 11am to 4pm
