Wheel display in Parc Melin Mynach
Wheel display in Parc Melin Mynach
This display is right next to the park entrance on the corner of Cecil Road and is made from parts of an 18th century cast iron water wheel retrieved from this site.
The park is a former industrial area that was left to become wasteland and later reclaimed. Unexpectedly, part of an old mill was found and excavated. See SS5999 : Melin Mynach, Gorseinon
The wheel in Alan's photo is a modern substitute.
Unfortunately, less and less of the old wheel remains as time goes by, due to metal thieves or vandals. The redundant brick supports hint at spokes that have gone missing since the display was originally created.
