Felin Gwalchmai Windmill was built in the early 19th century, and was in constant use as a Corn Mill until it's demise around 1930. At some stage it was converted, and a diesel engine fitted. The Mill is in fact much taller than its' exterior view reveals, as beneath it is a cellar.

On the 1881 census the only Miller in the parish is 39 year old Robert Williams, who lives at the premises named Ty Capel (Chapel House) with his wife, and one visitor. Robert Williams is said to be a Corn Miller.

Near the door of the Windmill lies a stone that has more than one rustic inscription - although they are difficult to read. One inscription appears to be J.W. 1888, and another earlier one has the initials (possibly) R.J. 1?83.

O.S. Coordinates: SH385759.
