Bodedern Woolen Mill - Pandy Cymunod (also known as Factory Cymuned) on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales.

In the 19th century, Pandy Cymunod was a thriving woolen mill which took its' power from the Afon Crigyll River. Like most of Anglesey's woolen mills it was actually known as a factory.

It is certainly amongst the most attractive of mill locations, and was also the one time home of Ken Williams (Reginald Kenneth Williams) - ex policeman, amateur naturalist, author, and founder of Penrhos Nature Reserve in Holyhead in 1972.

Sadly, absolutely nothing appears to have survived from the original machinery.



On the 1881 census John Jones aged 55 - and born in the parish of Bodedern - is listed as a farmer of 10 acres and factory owner at the property named Factory Cymuned (sic). Also living there are his wife Mary, born in Llanfechell, and four servants. One of the servants is a wool weaver, and another a 'Rholiwr', which is a wool roller.

Within yards of this mill is a cottage named 'Ty Franan', which was the birth place of W.D. Owen (William David Owen), the author of the novel Madam Wen. His descendants still live at the cottage.
