Little is left of this mill. There is just a semi-circle of precariously balanced stones alongside a ruined building, near the Tre-Iorwerth estate.
Until recently it was not known when this mill was built or abandoned. However, in 2015 a reader of this site contacted me regarding a number of 19th century documents about the Manaw farm that had passed down through the family from her great-great-great grandfather Edward Jones, who owned an interest in the farm. One document, an underlease dated 1830, states that Manaw windmill was built during the preceding two years by John Hughes, Hugh Hughes and William Hughes, who were millwrights from the Cefn Coch mill.
It was still in operation in 1851 when it was mentioned in Edward Jones' will, but by 1919 when the surrounding farm came up for sale the mill only got a passing mention, indicating that by this time it was disused and of little interest to a buyer. The 1936 photo from the Muggeridge collection shows it as capless but with the tower still intact.
