Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll Water Mill - Felin Pwll Fanogl Mill on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales.

When this water mill was first built it was just two storeys tall, and probably started its' life grinding corn and barley, and it was not until much later that it was extended to become a four storey building. The mill was powered by the Afon Braint River, which joins the Menai Straits at this point. I believe that its' later use may have changed to it becoming a slate dressing mill. By the early 20th century the building no longer functioned as a mill, and in fact it became a warehouse storing furniture.

In an area named Pwll Fanogl, the mill was actually part of a village of that name, that included a creamery that made margarine, a busy port, boat building, and a writing slate factory. It even boasted a pub named the Boat Inn.

The Mill was tastefully converted into a dwelling at the beginning of the 1990's, and is now a fine house, that has retained the voussoir lintels above the windows and doors.

In latter years Pwll Fanogl was made famous because the home of the artist Sir Kyffin Williams is here.
