Mentioned in King Edward III's Extant of Anglesey in 1352, there has been a corn mill named Dulas Mill here for over 600 hundred years. The Mill took its' energy from the Afon Coch (Red River) - so called because of the colour it went after copper and other mineral deposits had entered the water from the mines above.

In 1881 on the parish of Penrhoslligwy census, the Mill was being run by a corn miller named Owen Rowlands aged 30 and from Llanrhuddlad. Living with him is his wife and two very young sons. Living with them are two teenage servants, both of whom are also corn millers.

When I visited in Nov 2009 the Mill was for sale, and the owner showed me around the exterior of the building. It appeared that some original internal parts of the Mill had deteriorated, resulting in him having to take out old original timbers which he was in the process of burning. The Wheel had been removed and no longer existed. Two old millstones had been used in the floor lower level as features. When the mill was converted to a dwelling the holed tiles from the corn drying kiln were reused as externel flloor tiles.
