Melin Pant y Gwydd

This mill is hard to find as it is along a narrow, remote road and is built into a house facing away from the road. This is one of the least documented mills on Anglesey and little is known about it. It has been suggested that it closed in the early 19th century, since Tithe Maps of 1844 do not mention it and it is not marked on the 1840 Ordnance Survey map.

It is likely that it had a short life, due to its misjudged location. It is on high land and well exposed to wind, but the surrounding farmland is very rocky and poor and is unsuitable for growing grain. Farmers growing grain were probably more likely to take it to other mills closer to their farms.
