Carew Tidal Mill
Carew Tidal Mill
Following a fire in 1955 which destroyed a similar building in Pembroke, this tidal mill remains the only one of its kind in Wales.

A mill of some kind has existed here since as early as 1542 but the present building dates from the early 19th century. One of the two mill wheels carries the date 1801. The term “French Mill”, often used about Carew, may be a reference to the use of French burr stones. It is hoped that the south wheel will at least be able to turn some of the auxiliary machinery on a regular basis in the future.
