Rhenwyllan Mill

Period: Medieval - Modern

NGR Easting: 221445

NGR Northing: 468565

Description: Modern watermill.

A substantial watermill, built of local limestone, now converted into flats over five floors.

Documentary evidence from the early 16th century clearly points to there having been a mill on the site prior to this date.

The present mill structure was latterly used for woollen weaving.

Waterpower was provided from a dam lying to the west, now filled in, and the wheel was located on the north wall of the building; the masonry still bears scars where the wheel rubbed against the stonework.
