Felin Ganol

On the way down to Mair’s Bakehouse with Jay and Rob Butters for this year’s Bethesdabakin’ weekend, we called in at Felin Ganol to pick up flour.

Felin Ganol is one of the few remaining water mills In Wales and is run by Anne & Andrew Parry. Even though the water was very low in the mill pond they very kindly ran the mill for us and showed us around.

Some of the amazing ancient mechanism. That huge cog is actually revolving very slowly – the long shutter speed creates the blur.
