A Grade II Listed stone tower known locally as Y Felin Wynt, Hen Felin Wynt or Billy Wynt. The tower was already shown as 'an old tower' on Bowen's map of South Wales in 1729, and a windmill next to the town was said to have been destroyed during a battle in the C13. It survived as a tall tower during most of the C19, but it was much reduced by 1890. In 1893 the Llantrisant Town Trust employed Gomer S Morgan, architect, to restore the ruin as a folly, the works including the addition of steps and wide copings.
