Iron production commenced at Mostyn in the mid 1800's. The combination of a colliery, iron works and a dock made the whole enterprise extremely successful.
In its hey-day the combined colliery and ironworks employed 1,900 people and exported finished steel products worldwide through the Mostyn Quay (now The Port of Mostyn). The ironworks closed down in 1965.
