A Grade II Listed estate sawmill on the Wynnstay Estate. It appears for the first time on the 1885 Ordnance Survey, and again about 3m lengthened on the map of 1900. There is a date of 1871 on the turbine but this has been deemed misleading. A north wing was added post-1900, but no longer survives. The building was disused as a sawmill in the early 1930s but seems to have remained for other uses during the Second World War. A Pelton wheel is said to have been used in the 1950 to drive a chaff cutter for making bracken compost. It has since deteriorated considerably. Efforts were made in the late 1980s to restore and preserve the sawmill. At this time it was noted that the frame with its sawblades was intact.
