History

Gwili Mill was built in 1880 as a water powered woollen mill. It was extended in 1918, when a gas engine was installed. In the 1940'3 an oil engine was used operate the machinery. It continued producing woollen blankets, shawls and flannel until 1976.

Throughout the mill you will find photos and information about the machinery and products made in the mill when it was in operation.  You will also see the massive beams that were used to support the machinery. The stone walls are about 30 inches wide.

On the wall adjacent to the dining table you will see some graffiti with the names of some of the workers.
