SH3485 : Melin Wynt Llynnon Llanddeusant Llynnon Windmill

taken 9 years ago, near to Llanddeusant, Isle of Anglesey/Sir Ynys Mon, Great Britain

Melin Wynt Llynnon Llanddeusant Llynnon Windmill
Melin Wynt Llynnon Llanddeusant Llynnon Windmill
The only fully restored windmill out of more than fifty which once dotted the landscape of the island. Since early times Anglesey was known as "Mam Cymru" (mother of Wales) and supplied much of the north's grain.
Llynnon Mill was built in 1775 at a cost of 550, and operated until 1918 when it was damaged by a storm. In 1976 the ruin (see SH3485 : Llynnon Mill pre restoration 1976) was acquired by the council and restored as a tourist attraction and working productive mill.
Here it is two days before Easter and the mill is being prepared for reopening after its winter closure. The main job is the sheeting of the sails by the miller and his two new apprentice millers.
