Melin y Bont, Bryn Du, Llanfaelog

A Wind and water powered Corn mill in the historic county of Anglesey, Wales.

Built in 1825, this was a combined water and windmill in which the millstones could be driven from the waterwheel below or the sails above. Its sails were removed in 1930 and it continued to work solely by water power. The interior was destroyed by fire in 1973. The mill was converted into a house in 2006-2007. Grade II Listed.
