Former parish and county Buckley, Mold

Closed c.1865
Ownership history Thomas Green & Co.
Current status of site Wood and parkland ?

The works of Thomas Green at Padeswood, were included in the 1865 coal commission list but not the 1868 Slater's trade directory. In March 1865, the London Standard carried a sales advertisment for the works; "known as Green and Co.'s Mineral Oil Works, Coppa Park, occupying an area of a statute acre. Lease of the site had been taken out in June 1863

The location of Greens works is uncertain; they were certainly a separate operation from the Coppa Colliery Oil Works. It seems possible that the site of Green's oil works were subsumed into the Coppa Oil Works of the Coppa Oil Co. Ltd.
