The Grade II Listed fulling mill (pandy) was probably built in the late C18 or early C19, in the angle between the main Afon Cerist, and a minor tributary the Nant Coll. Earthen banks above the mill suggest that the latter may have been dammed. It is recorded as having a water wheel 12ft (3.66m) in diameter situated on the SE side, driving two tappet wheels and 2 pairs of stocks. It also was equiped with '9 pieces of Racks capable of Holding 138 Yards of Flannel', a boiler, tubs and all other requisites for bleaching.
