Tramway embankment by Deiniol's Ash Colliery"



The tramway descended from Buckley through Penarlag and tunnelled between a point near the Golf Club entrance and the tump of Truman's Hill, then passed near to Deiniol's Ash Colliery and reached a prominent embankment. At the north end of this embankment, it entered the precincts of Mancot Colliery. The line then appreared to turn right, and crossed Moor Lane to a derelict site known as Scotland. In this field, north of this spot, a joining track could be discerned from Hawarden Castle Colliery by Rake Lane. The combined track proceeded north to the river at Sandycroft jetty.
