Ruins of Trefin Mill/Melin Trefin
The mill was in use by the villagers of Trefin for around 500 years. Wheat was milled into flour for bread and barley was ground into winter feed for cattle and pigs. By 1900 cheap grain from overseas was being milled in local towns in much bigger mills. Trefin Mill eventually closed in 1918. A leat, diverted from the nearby stream, just out of shot to the right, would have provided the power to turn the large outside wheel, (now removed).
