Visited with Lenston, The_Raw and MiaroDigital

A really nice place with many wonderful details.

History (acquired by Lenston)

Out of the 5 mills situated in Talybont the mill was the only one built on the banks of the River Celuan. It is sometimes refereed to as Heron Mill. Built in 1847 by the Morris family it prominently produced flannel and cloth.

Although originally powered by a small waterwheel it was converted to run on electric during the 1920/30’s. The mill continued to operate till 1962 when, like so many other mills, it suffered from imported cotton prices. Attempts were made to pass the ownership over to the national trust but the then owners could not contribute to the cost of handing it over. Grade II* listed in 1997 the mill retains nearly all of its working machinery at closure.

Absolute class! You mean to tell me that this place has been closed since 1962 and looks as good as that?

That's incredible Andy, I'm jealous of these pics. I can't believe you managed all these shots in less than half an hour!! Top work mate (y)

I knew we have only very little time. So I hurried myself. :) And while I made a bracketing, I already looked around for the next photo opportunity. ;)
