Little is known about the origin or date of this windmill, only that it had probably stopped working by the 1880's. Probably the smallest of Anglesey's Windmills that I have seen, this windmill would unlikely have ground corn, and possibly may have been used to drive mechanisms on this farm.

When I photographed the Mill in November of 2009 I reached the conclusion that without intervention it might be just a pile of stones within the next ten years. Alongside the Mill is a farm building that was probably a barn, or possibly stables, and my guess would be that a building date somewhere in the 18th century would be about right.
