Bodedern Watermill - known as Factory Llywenan Woolen (Fulling) Mill on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales.

As I have said on the 'Pandy Llywenan' page in my opinion it possible that these two mills were part of the same business, and were possibly operated by the same family.

The power for driving the water wheel was provided by a stream from the nearby Llyn (Lake) Llywenan. After passing through the mill the water then passed under the road and along a burrow to the nearby mill pond of Pandy Llywenan, where it also powered that mill.

The mill in latter years was operated by the Anglesey Tweed Company, which still existed up until the 1970's. I understand that the substantial water wheel was at some point stolen - and probably sold as scrap metal! I believe that much of the machinery is still stored inside.

On the 1881 census, Evan Jones aged 30, and born in Caernarfon, is listed as a wool manufacturer. He lives at the premises named 'Factory Llywenan' with his wife, 1 daughter and 2 sons.
