DESCRIPTION The Mill dates back to approx 1810 and is situated next to the River Banwy and enjoys half a mile of private fishing rights which includes trout and salmon. The current owner has painstakingly renovated and restored the millers house from what was a derelict building. Set in approximately 7 and a 1/2 acres of ancient woodland including Oak, Beech, Ash, Silver Birch and Aspen trees. The property was a former corn mill with an integral Millers house and offers future buyers a wealth of further opportunities (subject to the necessary permissions). There are also a number of outbuildings which again have massive potential.
LOCATION The Mill is located approximately 1.8 miles from the town of Llanfair Caereinion which offers a range of amenities including shops, post office, butcher, public houses, doctors, dentist, hairdressers, library and garage. Along with a primary and secondary school and leisure centre. The nearby towns of Welshpool and Newtown offer supermarkets and a further range of shops. There are good road links to Shrewsbury, Oswestry and beyond.
HISTORY In the early 19th century, a masonry structure was added against the timber-framed section to enclose the wheel. It is believed that milling was continued until the 1950s. In 1914 Llanfair Electricity put in a hydroelectric system and The Mill was the first place in Wales to generate hydro-electricity. This ceased in 1952 when a generator was built in the village.
The Mill was fed by a 600m leat from a weir across the river Banwy and augmented by a stream crossing over the leat as there was no pond. Evidence of the leat is still present today. The pelton wheel drove a pair of millstones by a chain and belt drive.
Today the mill workings are still present and are in need of renovation. This 3 storey building would lend itself to being converted into addition living accommodation (subject to the necessary permissions).
