Oooooooooooh these are the places I love to see. Seeing the millstones still there and intact and the grooves for the waterwheel are great. It looks like it's in a glorious spot too. I can see why you'd buy it if you won the lottery. :)

Excellent pics, I really do like this.

Cheers,

:) Sal

Thats a lovely building. :)

It looks so peaceful there.

I'm suprised that developers have left this one alone? It's great to see most of the interior left intact - I wouldn't fancy using those stones to mill flour now (but then again there's probably worse stuff goes into our food).

Excellent find. Thanks for sharing.

In reply to Sausage and sqwasher - remember looking around this about 10 or more year ago and some time after someone set about renovating it or at least having matrials dropped ready to make a start. Not long after the area had a sizeable flood (as this river occasionally has) and I suspect whoever was going to start the work reassessed that his luxury, riverside mill-house may occasionally have a semi-permanent water feature previously known as the ground floor.

Great pix carlos - you've reminded me to take a look back at this one

Think you spoilt the set with your tagging even thoughit was environmentally more friendly. Nice to find a place like that and I love the mill wheels still there the place also looks to be in good condition.
I found one on Anglesea last year and asked the owner if it was possable to take some pictures, he was most helpfull and showed me round the place telling me how it all used to look like and work. He is currently converting it into a house which looks over towards Snowdon and is keeping as much of the workings in it as possable. If you guy's want I'll start another thread with some of the pictures.
