The old slate mill, Melin Pant yr Ynn is only a short walk away and is the earliest surviving slate mill in Blaenau Ffestiniog.Since its closure the mill has been converted into a private house, the home of Falcon Hildred, a renowned local artist.Nowadays the mill, which is grade 2 listed, is open to the public and contains an interesting collection of industrial artefacts and an exhibition of water colour drawings recording the historic town, quarries and dramatic landscape of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The waterwheel can also be seen working, except in very dry conditions.
