Note:

Online shop now open.

Shop at Trefriw re-opening July 30th 2020.

Shop hours: Thursday, Friday, Saturday 11am - 5pm from July 30th.

Water Powered Turbine

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 two beautiful lakes above Trefriw which supply our water (Crafnant and Geirionydd) can be visited by foot or car.

Opening Times

Shop and turbine house open all year, Monday – Saturday (and Sundays in Summer).

Weaving mid February – mid December, Monday – Friday (except bank holidays).
