Features
History

The Old Mill (previously known as the New Mill or Lower Mill) is thought to date from the early 1800s, if not earlier, and was located on the western bank of the Rver Wye in the parish of Llansantffread-Cwmdauddwr, over the bridge from Rhayader. It was a corn mill built on the Gwyn Llyn stream draining from the Cambrian Mountains into the River Wye to harness the force of the water to power it.

To the right hand side of the mill was the miller's cottage, the foundations of which remain today. The mill pond, the channels to feed the water wheels, and the base for the mill building were all cut from solid rock. The corn mill was still being used in the late 1930s. The miller's cottage was last occupied by a local family in the late 1950s/early 1960s.

Location

The Old Mill and pasture field are accessed through a five bar gate directly from a Council maintained highway at Station Road.

The river bank upstream and downstream of the Old Mill, along with the fishing rights, is included in the sale as is the super 2.6 ACRE (tbv) field which is laid to pasture.

Old Mill

The former Old Mill is now fairly dilapidated but has parts of all four walls standing with the water mill and some other features are also visible.

Fishing Rights

The vendors have advised that single bank fishing rights are included with the sale of the property.

Mill and Riverside Land

The Old Mill is set in approximately 1.3 acres (tbv) as can be identified edged in red on the plan provided.

The land extending from the riverbank to the western boundary is a nature lover's paradise. The Gwyn Llyn stream joins the River Wye within this plot and provides a beautiful feature.

Pastureland

A 2.6 ACRE (tbv) pasture field adjoins the amenity land that surrounds the Old Mill. This is identified as edge in blue on the plan provided.

The land provides excellent grazing for all classes of livestock as well as providing good quality fodder.

Given the location of the land close to the Waun Capel Parc in Rhayader, there may be other opportunities available subject to gaining the necessary planning consents (with the exception of permanent residential accommodation).
