Dyfi Furnace: Water mill & falls 

On the main A487 road  from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth, lies this picturesque old relic from Wales' industrial past. The village is named after the furnace here which was originally constructed around 1755 for smelting iron ore, with fuel obtained from local woods and stored upstairs in the building.  
 
At this time, the waterwheel would have powered a huge pair of bellows which supplied compressed air vital for the blast furnace's operation. Most of the pig iron would have found its way to forges in the Midlands. Upstream  of the watermill the River Einion provides a scenic water fall.

Apparently, the furnace only lasted for about 50 years before being abandoned. Some years later it was turned into a sawmill and a new waterwheel was installed to drive the machinery. This later waterwheel is the one that has been restored and is viewable today.

There is now no admission fee charged for entry to this site which means you can wander around at leisure, but this does unfortunately mean that you can no longer go inside the building.
