See the hydro-electric turbine dating from the 1940s which generates the electricity to power the mill. Some of the water in the river Crafnant is diverted into a pipe about 340 metres upstream. The water from the pipe turns the pelton wheel inside the turbine which drives the alternator.
The Weaver's Garden (at best June - Sept) contains plants connected with textiles which are all labelled to show their uses. We have plants which provide fibres, soap substitutes, natural dyes, moth repellents, textile tools etc. Open during shop hours.
