Saw mill

A sawmill was established at Ty'n Rhos Llanddewi-Brefi, Ceredigion (Cardiganshire) in1868 and this building was erected to house a new water-powered circular saw in 1892.

The water wheel to operate the machinery at that time cost 15, During the early 1930s an old model-T Ford car engine was installed as an alternative source of power The mill was dismantled and moved to St. Fagans in 1987

The survey is ongoing and only the equipment operated by the water wheel is shown at present. The Ford engine, building cladding and hand operated machinery will be added later
