Really cant tell you much about this place other than the main house is still occupied & this was obviously a water mill at some time.

Not sure what it was used for, there are no mill wheels left, just a lot of pulley wheels etc.

Any history on this one appreciated.

I assume this was originally the waterway but there is no sign of a wheel now

The barns are large spaces being used for a small amount of storage & not much else but seem in good condition

On the higher levels there is large loading doors & more pulleys

Just when we though we were done this delight was thrown up.

Nestled next to a small lake I can only assume this was a pump house or something, despite the decay it was quite beautiful.

Unless it was just part of the chattels owned by the Miller's family, it could have been used to repair the sacks used to hold the milled grain.

I grew up around here, so know a little bit... If I remember right Lord Harlech at the time (Francis) used to live in the house after he sold the hall, for a time at least.

The mill buildings would have been a part of the home farm I imagine, so grinding and threshing etc.

The building next to the lake is the old boat house. (Edit: I think this is further north actually, you probably missed it)

Incidentally, half of the main hall has been knocked down now, which is a travesty.
