Stallion Valley Holiday Cottages Advice
Felin Ganol-water powered flour mill Llanrhystud

Felin Ganol is one of the last working water powered corn mills using original machinery to produce high quality flour in Wales

On most weekdays one of our two pairs of original French Burr stones grinds organically grown wheat, rye or spelt to produce wholemeal flour just as they did one hundred and fifty years ago, and the restored 19th century wire machine sieves the wholemeal to give a fine white flour, semolina and bran.

When the present owners arrived in 2006 the mill had not worked for many years. The mill pond only filled when the river was in flood and the wheel had sunk in the wheelpit. Slowly we began to learn more about the place, to uncover its history and understand how it worked. The millpond was excavated and refilled in July 2008 and even at very low water can provide a store for an hour’s milling.

Today we have restored the mill machinery to working order and once again produce flour commercially. Felin Ganol flour is used by local bakers and restaurants and is available from the mill.

A guided tour of the mill enables you to view the milling of grain to produce wholemeal flour, including watching the waterwheel operating and sampling the flour.

Times of Opening:     Groups are welcome by prior appointment between 10a.m. and 5p.m. on weekdays (3p.m. in the winter). Mill open Saturday 10a.m to 2p.m for flour sales.
