On B4415, half a mile to W of Efailnewydd.

Felin-Rhyd-Hir is a two-story, stone built water-powered corn mill under a pitched slated roof.
The composite overshot waterwheel remains in place on the north west gable wall end, and there are two pairs of millstones which we hope to be able to work in future.

The mill was supplied by a pond to the north of the mill, fed from the Afon Rhyd-Hir via a 1.7 km long leat which also captured the tailrace water from Melin Llannor.

The Priest family are currently undertaking a large restoration project to return the site to full working order.
Planning permission has now been granted !!
The restoration begins . . .
