    We arrived here as part of our Welsh exploration roadtrip. I'm not big on derps, much preferring the tickle of sewage on my heels, the warm, un-interrupted, tranquil security that being underground gives.

    If it requires stealthing past seccy or skillful framing of empty, peeling, graffiti-ridden hallways, i'd normally pass the offer up. But the village was holding a fayre, and we meandered our way past the milling tourists and down to Ceulan Mill. Really worth checking out, it's in a lot better condition than a lot of the other derps i've seen (not that i've seen any 'difficult' ones yet :p )

    The mill was built in 1847, producing wool for the use of industrial clothing. Woolen spindles can still be seen, although slightly faded, sat on what appear to be some type of looming machine. I am no mechanical engineer but the cogs and belts provided a welcomed change in photo subject.

    Cheers for looking!

    I could have sworn someone said this had partially collapsed, good to see it hasn't.

    It's Leri that's partially collapsed. The top floor was a bit iffy but the building seemed fairly stable.

    Cheers, the ambient lighting was awesome!

    This place has to be one of my favorite mills, quite small but chocked full of good stuff. Excellent photos too :thumb
