This Grade II* Listed former corn mill was built in the 17th century for milling local corn. In view of the small amount of arable land in the South Wales valleys and the move to completely livestock farming the mill remarkeably only ceased operation in the 1970's and fell into disrepair. It was restored in the 1990's and now houses a candle maker and a local museum dedicated to radios. It was at this mill that Artie Moore received the distress call from the Titanic but the local police ignored his call to action.
