Pontdolgoch saw mill is believed to be the only fully operating, privately owned water driven sawmill and carpenter's workshop in the United Kingdom.  The sawmill  is powered by a fully operational overshot waterwheel, supplied from the millpond on the slope above. The mill is over a hundred years old and built at the turn of the last century to replace the previous mill that once stood on this site. It is intact and untouched, still operating as it did over a century ago

Ty Coch ('The Red House' in Welsh) is an award winning, fully intact Victorian water powered saw mill located in the heart of Mid Wales. The traditional Welsh longhouse is believed to date from 1650 and the adjacent overshot water wheel was built in the early 1800s to power the traditional carpentry workshop. Tim offers a unique opportunity to visit in this historic working water mill and is happy to run demonstrations on request.
