Pentre Berw Windmill

Known as Melin Berw on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales.

Pentre Berw, Melin Berw Windmill – one of the last photographs of this windmill in its’ natural state.

Melin Berw Windmill is believed to date from the late 18th century and continued working until the late 19th century. As I could not find the mill on the 1881 census, it is possible that it may have stopped working by then.

As early as the 1920s this mill had been converted to a dwelling and I have seen photos of it with two chimneys, making it reminiscent of ‘Noddy’s House’ if I am truthful.

In November 2009 when I took these photographs, the mill was in the process of being made an integral part of a new house. I will look forward to the finished result, although I suspect there will be little of the windmill in view.
