Aberffraw Watermill - known as Cellar Mill on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales.

Very little is known of the history of Cellar Mill, which was part of Cellar Farm. The water wheel had been removed by the mid 1970's.

In 1881 the mill and farm were being run - or were possibly owned - by a 65 year old widow named Margaret Williams. Living with her are two grown up sons and one daughter. Assuming that none of the children (or indeed Margaret herself) had the expertise to run the mill, then it is likely that a Corn Miller named Hugh Williams, aged 42 and of Llanerchymedd, but then living in Aberffraw at 124, Tanyrardd, may well have been the actual miller.
