Trefriw Wollen Mills Ltd Main Road Trefriw
Originally a Pandy (fulling mill), it was situated on the fast running River Crafnant in order to use the water to drive the waterwheels and to wash the wool. The mill had been operating for over 30 years when it was bought by Thomas Williams in 1859. It is still owned and run by the same family. Visitors to the Mill can see the weaving and hydro-electric turbines which generate electricity.
